Ingredients

2 pounds Idaho or Yukon gold potatoes, unpeeled

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 cup whole milk

1/2 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions

  1. Put the potatoes in a medium pot, cover with cold water and add 2 tablespoons salt. Bring just to a simmer and cook the potatoes, uncovered, until tender, about 45 minutes. Drain.
  2. Peel the potatoes and return them to the pot (if desired, pass them through a ricer or food mill after peeling). Mash the potatoes with the milk and olive oil using a fork or potato masher. Stir in the chives, dill, parsley, 2 teaspoons salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
