Ingredients
Directions

Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, generously salt the water, and boil the potatoes until tender, approximately 30 to 40 minutes. Drain and let stand until cool enough to handle. Peel potatoes, if desired, and cut into 1-inch chunks. Place cut potatoes in a large bowl. Sprinkle parsley and green onions over potatoes. Make the sauce by mixing the rest of the ingredients together in another bowl; then pour sauce over the potatoes. Stir well. Let stand all day, or at least for 4 hours, stirring every hour. Do not refrigerate. Serve at room temperature.

Excellent salad! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious recipe, which I have made quite a few times without making anyone ill. If you clean the produce very well, use clean utensils and keep your hands clean, this recipe should not pose a problem. I view it as sort of similar to making pickles at room temperature--the vinegar and salt help keep "growies" at bay. Do observe scrupulous cleanliness and cover the bowl between stirrings. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Hey Paula, It's a health code violation to leave potentailly hazerdous foods (phf's) out in the temperature danger zone (room temperature) for 4 hours. Perhaps you should post recipes that won't make people sick. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I had no green onions so I subbed shallots, I didn't have tarragon vinegar so I used 1/2 balsamic and 1/2 red wine vinegar. I sauteed my garlic so it didn't have quite so much bite. My family really liked it! I served it with steak with garlic thyme butter!! I think I will for sure try it using basil in it with no balsamic vinegar next time. The balsamic can be a bit too heavy for what is surely intended to be a lighter refreshing side dish. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I MADE THESE POTATOES AND THERE GREAT. NICE CHANGE FROM MAYO. HOWEVER, ON THE BROADCAST PAULA SAYS TO FILL THE POT OF POTATOES WITH HOT WATER!!!! IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN FILLED WITH COLD WATER. DOSENT ANYONE PREVIEW THESE BROADCASTS? item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great to take to a dinner party,particularly since it does not need to be refrigerated. I like it because you can easily substitute the herbs: I used thyme in the vinegar instead of tarragon, chives (1 pack)instead of green onion, and larger amounts of basil, and parsley. I have also used rosemary. We served a bowl of shaved parmesan on the side. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I found this recipe under 'vegetarian', but worchestershire isn't vegetarian because it contains anchovies. If cooking for a vegetarian, you may want to find an alternative ingrediant. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for Easter and it was a big hit. The flavors all blend in together for an incredible tasting potato salad. I even threw in some steamed green beans. Great combination. Quick and easy to make too. I will be making this recipe time and time again!!! Great job Paula. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a wonderful recipe that even my very picky husband loves. I'll eat just about anything that contains vinegar, but was shocked to discover that he loved this too. I had it sitting out during its 'waiting period' the first time I made it, and it only got to wait for a couple of hours - once he found it, it was all over! It's quite adaptable as well; if I don't have green onions, I'll use chives, etc. and it's still quite tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
improvised on the vinegar, used a very good red wine garlic instead of tarragon . I also added chopped roasted red peppers about a cup. It was a hit , I have been asked to make this again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I couldn't find the sugested vinigar so I used Balsamic. It was just too heavy for this dish. I will get it right next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I couldn't wait the four hours to start eating this, it is amazing and keeps getting better as it sits. I used a 1/2 cup of white balsamic vinegar and 1 1/2 teaspoons of dried tarragon instead of tarragon vinegar. I was so excited to use my tarragon which I hardly ever do. This is the best potato salad ever! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This a wonderful recipe ! I have made it twice now. My family loves it. Even the smaller children ask for more. It is so simple too. It is a keeper Paula. Thanks. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe for a cookout this July fourth and it was the most delicious potato salad I have had in a long time. I have my Mom's recipe with mayo and many more recipes from Bon Appetit magazine. This by far is the greatest, if you cannot find tarrogon vinegar do as I did make your own!!!! Tarragon leaves regular white vinegar simmer for 30 minutes . Store in a tight lid jar and voila you have tarragon vinegar. Thank you Paula for a wonderful summer recipe Deborah Ogunquit Me item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made it just as the recipe said- it was good, but not 5 star good. I'll likely make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe sounded delicious, until I got to the part that directed that the food not be refrigerated for a minimum of 4 hours or an entire day. This would put the food at a very dangerous level. Potatoes especially can build up a toxin. Just to be sure that I am sharing the correct information, I researched the facts. Below is what I found on a site for serving save food: Once low acid vegetables have been cooked they are soft, moist and nutritious so any bacteria that are introduced will now have everything needed to grow and therefore the cooked potatoes, left in the danger zone temperature well beyond the 2 hours could potentially cause foodbourne illness. I am sure you do not want to take a chance, especially in the heat of summer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We just made it for 4th of July. We really like this recipe, however we made a few changes, I could not file Tarragon vinegar but I found basil and oregano vinegar which suits our taste. We also like texture in our food and we added white onions and pickles. Also I used less of the oil. This recipe is a keeper, try it!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great no mayo Not a fan of tarragon, used fresh dill and want to try thyme. Really impressed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make this as a side dish when I make Paula's oven brisket. It is excellent. Definitely enough for a crowd. I like the fact that you can leave it out for a while. Easy to assemble and run of the mill ingredients that you have on hand. Anyone out there looking for a potato salad with no mayo this recipe is worth making! item not reviewed by moderator and published
my daughter made this salad and we all loved it. i made it and it was easy and taste yummy.. we like to make it for parties and picnics.. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been making this salad for a couple of years now and I love it. It's easy, no refrigeration and everyone seems to enjoy it. The longer it sits, the better it tastes. Thanks Paula for a great recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were excellent. A great dish for leaving out for a long time. I didn't have enough tarragon vinegar so for half of it I used white wine vinegar with 1 1/2 teaspoons dried tarragon. It was great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is so good and so easy. My mother-in-law cannot eat regular potato salad because of the mayo, but this is perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is easy to make. Couldn't find Tarragon vinegar at my store, so I just used white vinegar and added some Tarragon spice. It was delicious and light. I've made this recipe a few times so far, and each and every time there was none left. Everyone came back for seconds and thirds!! This one is a keeperl will make this all year round:-) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wanted a salad that wasn't with mayo. I saw Paula make this and I was so excited. This recipe is so many things. The potatoes I used were salt potatoes and I cut them in 1/2. After I let it marinate for about 6 hours I tasted it. I had been given the suggestion to smash the potatoes a bit and what a great suggestion. I will do this the next time before it marinates. All the flavors are fantastic together. This recipe is so gourmet and yet so primitive. I will make this again and again as I have already been asked for the recipe and to make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I needed something to do with potatoes other than baking them and this was it! Verry tasty and easy . I only had russet potatoes and they probably werent as good as red but they still tasted great. Cut the cooking time by 10 or 15 minutes so they wouldnt get too soft. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family loves this. I love the fact that you need to keep it at room temp. for a while. This makes it great for picnics, cookouts, get-togethers. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These potatoes were a huge hit at our party yesterday. I was looking for a potatoe salad recipe, but got something much better. This recipe is full of flavor and was perfect for our neighborhood cookout. This is going in my favorites for sure! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I recently served this salad and got great reviews from my husband. I did however cut the receipe in half. It was a refreshing change of pace for potatoe salad. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this a couple weeks ago with only three of us eating it. It is so easy and you do need all the oil. After a few days I fried some bacon and put that and a little bacon fat a just a bit more sugar and it made a great German potatoe salad too. Will make it again....I hat making potatoe salad but not this one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love Paula's recipes; however, we did not care for this one. Not much flavor. All we could taste was vinegar. I'll stick with Paula's Texas Country Potato Salad item not reviewed by moderator and published
My inlaws served these one day, and I was really wary at first. I thought that it would taste like potato salad, which I don't like at all. I tried it, and it is nothing like potato salad. This dish is now one of my favorites!!! I love the texture and the taste of the potatoes and can not wait until I can try it out at home!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Anyone who's been through ServSafe certification would know not to leave food like this at room temperature for more than 4 hours. It's just not safe. Also, commercial mayo is usually not the culprit in foodborne illnesses - more often it's the chicken, tuna or potatoes. Enjoy the recipe, but don't leave it at room temp that long. item not reviewed by moderator and published

My Greatgrandmother down to my kids - we have made this recipe forever - EXCEPT add some chopped hot cherry peppers and some of the juice right from the jar according to your taste, after a few hours of marinating. Great for a summertime picnic since it can stand up to the heat of the day. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy to make and the hit of the party. Best part....no mayo! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This became our all time favorite potato salad recipe after the first bite. It's easy, fast and o so delicious. Friends and family will walk by picking pieces of the salad out of the serving bowl. I made no changes in the recipe except to reduce the amount of sugar by half. But I prepared the sauce in my food processor to emulsify and chop the garlic fine. Then I put in the parsley and pulsed to rough chop the leaves, (I find trying to chop parsley to be tedious). Be sure to cut the potatoes into large pieces and that they're warm enough when you add them to the sauce to intensify and blend the flavors. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe because not only is it delicious, but you can keep it at room temperature, which makes it perfect for picnics and out by the pool. The flavors are the best! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these using white wine vinegar and they were mighty tasty. A good staple potato salad recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Paula, you did it again! These were so delicious. My very picky family loved them and i agree with the other poster, they were very similar to german potato salad without the bacon. I don't like bacon anyway so these were perfect! Love them ,and i can't wait to make them again!!!!!!!!! Thanks Paula! Diane item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for an outdoor picnic and doubled the recipe. I found that though I doubled the potatoes I could have gotten away with 1 1/2 of the dressing rather than doubling it as well. There was a lot of the oil mixture in the bottom of the bowl. Otherwise, yummy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wanted a non-mayonaise potato salad for a large backyard barbeque and happen to see Paula's episode for Italian potato salad. The amount of olive oil looked a little intimidating, but the results were fabulous. I kept tasting it as it sat on the counter, and she's absolutely right about minimum 4 hours marinating. Will say on my list of bests. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A little less garlic is better. Recipe was very easy and delicious. A real crowd pleaser. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful. I halved the recipe to take to a Labor Day cookout at freinds and there were no leftovers. I made the night before and got up and stirred during night and they had soaked up all the good stuff. I didn't have tarragon vinegar so I added a little tarragon. On the mark Paula item not reviewed by moderator and published

Definitely a new taste for potatoes! This recipe was -extremely- easy, and was a hit for Father's Day. The potatoes absorb all of the flavors of the ingredients and each one has a nice, creamy, but tart taste to it. Very delicious. I didn't leave the potatoes sit long enough in the sauce, but they were still very delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I MADE THIS YESTERDAY WITH HER WONDERFUL SOUTHERN FRIED CHICKEN AND DELICIOUS MARINATED TOMATOES. THE POTATOES WERE SUCH A HIT WITH MY FAMILY THAT I WAS HANDING OUT PRINTED COPIES. I COOKED THE POTATOES THE DAY BEFORE. I DID MAKE THE MISTAKE OF COVERING THE POTATOES WITH PRESS N'SEAL. IT SEALED IN THE MOISTURE CAUSING THE POTATOES TO TURN GRAY. I HAD TO REMOVE SOME OF THE POTATOES BUT OTHERWISE IT WAS FINE AND A REAL TIME SAVER. I WOULD COVER THEM LOOSELY NEXT TIME. THE GREAT THING ABOUT THE RECIPE IS YOU COULD LEAVE IT OUT ALL DAY AND SAVE ROOM IN THE FRIG FOR OTHER GOODIES. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The potatoes turned out great, only suggestion (and I know this would be hard to believe), but they needed a little more olive oil, because the potatoes soaked up so much. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thoroughly enjoyed Paula's Italian Potatoes. I found the taste to be similar to German Potato Salad... without the bacon (which, I suppose, you could add). Preparation was very easy, and it was a welcome change from the ordinary potato salad. My family loved it ! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these potatoes and let me tell you my husband and I flipped over them! They had just the right balance between sweet and tart and were a great change from your regular potatoe salad. I highly suggest making this recipe, you will not be disappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
