Dill and Shallot Potato Salad

Serves 4

Mix a Dijon dill dressing with tender fingerling or baby potatoes for a tasty salad. This is a perfect side for Snappy Schnitzel.


  • 1 1/2 pounds fingerling or other baby potatoes, thinly sliced
  • Salt
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • Pepper
  • 1 scant teaspoon sugar
  • About 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • About 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 small rib celery, very thinly sliced
  • A handful of fresh dill, chopped


  1. In a large pot, cover the potatoes with an inch of cold water. Bring to a boil, salt the water and cook to tender. Drain and return the potatoes to the hot pot to dry them off.
  2. Meanwhile, place the shallot in a bowl and season with salt, pepper and sugar; cover with cider vinegar and let stand for a few minutes. Add the mustard and whisk in the oil. Adjust the seasonings, to taste. Toss the potatoes with the dressing, celery and dill.
