French Potato Salad

french pot salad (1)Summer is in full swing around my town. Fireworks, barbeques and days at the pool! Going to a friend’s house for dinner soon? Here is a perfect side dish from Ina Garten.

My friend made this for a dinner she had at her house. My husband can’t eat wheat, like so many people, so this was a welcome sight. No dairy products to spoil when left outside, easy ingredients that you probably have in your house right now and you can make it ahead! If I don’t have chicken stock or white wine open, I leave them out and increase the mustard and vinegar by a little bit. The dressing is tangy and the herbs give this potato salad a crisp freshness.
