French Style Potato Salad Recipe

alt

There are so many different styles of the beloved potato salad recipe. Most common are German, red potato and mom's classic potato salad.

This recipe is a little different. What makes it French style is the Dijon mustard, the dry white wine and of course, the tarragon (vinegar and herb itself). Tarragon is an integral player of French Cuisine. It's unmistakable anise-like aroma and flavor is so desirable in French cooking, from the professional chefs, who are truly artists, to the rustic kitchens of the countryside.
