Potato Salad Vinaigrette

This is my favorite potato salad ever! I don’t need to go to a picnic or potluck to whip this easy salad up. Instead of a being thick and creamy, it has a light vinaigrette-style dressing (no mayo).

But the real secret to this dressing is what you marinate the cooked potatoes in before you toss it with the dressing…


Allow the warm cooked potatoes to soak in the white wine for at least 15 minutes – this makes all the difference in this salad. PotatoSaladVinaigrette2

Drain the potatoes, then mix up the vinaigrette. Then gently toss everything together.
