Roasted Provincial-Style Potato Salad


2 pounds new potatoes, chopped into eighths
1 shallot, chopped
2 Tb. capers, 1 Tb. brine from caper jar
2 teaspoons Rosemary, chopped
2 teaspoons Thyme, chopped
2 teaspoons Lavender, chopped (dried or fresh)
4 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/2 cup mayonnaise


Preheat the oven to 400*. Cut each potato into bite-size pieces. Lay them on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with a little oil. Lightly salt and pepper.
Shake the pan to spread the oil around; then roast for 30-40 minutes—until golden brown and tender. Make sure to flip once half way through, and add the chopped garlic to the potatoes 5-10 minutes before they are ready to come out of the oven.
Once the potatoes and garlic are roasted, allow them to cool for a few minutes; then toss them with the capers, fresh herbs, Dijon and mayo. Mix well, and add a little caper juice to season and thin out the dressing. *Be careful with the caper brine—it’s really salty!
Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Serves 4+.




A far cry from the traditional potato salad! The addition of capers, rosemary, thyme and lavender brighten the flavor. This is sure to be a new favorite!
