Instructions
Make the vinaigrette
  1. Use a Microplane or peeler and zest the lemon. Set the zest aside
  2. Grab the sprigs of thyme. This is lemon thyme (pretty, right?) - which I love, but regular thyme is also lovely. If you don't have fresh, dried works beautifully
  3. Combine the juice of the lemon, red wine vinegar, thyme, olive oil, salt and pepper in a small jar
  4. Shake like crazy to emulsify and set aside
Make the Potatoes
  1. Finely dice the shallot
  2. Wash and drain the potatoes. I love to use the tiny red, new potatoes I find at the farmer's market. If you can't find them, cut the potatoes into 1/4" pieces
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add a tablespoon of salt
  4. Add the potatoes to the boiling water and cook until just tender - between 6 and 10 minutes, depending on their sizes
  5. Test the potatoes with a fork to see how they are doing. I start testing after about 5 minutes
  6. Drain the potatoes and let them cool for about 10 minutes. You want them to still be warm, but not piping hot
  7. Add the diced shallots and a pinch of the lemon zest to the warm potatoes
  8. Add a couple of tablespoons of the vinaigrette to the warm potatoes - I usually start with a small amount and add to taste
  9. Refrigerate the potato salad for 1-2 hours until nice and cold. Does anyone else use a plate instead of plastic wrap? I'm channeling my mother on this one!
  10. Stir up the potato salad, add more dressing if needed and serve
  11. It's light, full of flavor and the perfect accompaniment to all your summer favorites
