Potato Salad:

Mustard Vinaigrette:


  1. For the potato salad: Place the potatoes and whole garlic cloves in a large pot and cover by 2 inches with cold water. Season the water liberally with salt. Bring the potatoes to a simmer over medium heat and cook until fork-tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Drain the potatoes and garlic in a colander. Transfer to a sheet tray or cutting board. Gently press each potato and garlic clove to smash them and set them aside in a bowl, covering the bowl with aluminum foil to keep the potatoes warm.
  2. For the vinaigrette: In a large bowl, whisk together the shallots, vinegar, lemon juice, mustard, honey, salt and a generous grinding of pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil to emulsify the vinaigrette.
  3. Add the warm potatoes to the vinaigrette and toss to combine. Add the parsley, dill and tarragon to the potatoes. Toss to coat, seasoning with additional lemon juice and salt to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with the Fresno chile and chives. Serve at room temperature or keep covered in the refrigerator overnight, tossing again before serving.
