Balsamic Potato Salad

This was the recipe I chose from the salad category of The Herbfarm Cookbook for the 2nd week of my cookbook project. I admit I'm not a huge fan of balsamic vinegar. When I bought the ingredients for the recipe I forgot I already had some balsamic vinegar so now I've got two nearly full bottles of balsamic vinegar. Does anyone need a bottle? I must admit though that this was the best potato salad I've ever made. The recipe made a fair amount. After 3 days it's all gone, ate the last of it at lunch today. I normally make the mayo/mustard type of potato salad, but this one was much different and full of flavor and herby goodness. At the end of the recipe, there were a couple of different options for herbs to use. This is one recipe I will definitely make again to try out some of these other variations. There was one alternative using dill that I must try.

I decided to use fingerling potatoes rather than red potatoes just because I've never used them before. They were a sinch to cut up and they cooked very well too. I used some of the mint from my herb garden that I had planted last year. I've discovered there's a lot more herbs I'd love to add to my herb garden like oregano, parsley, dill, and tarragon.

You'll have to get the book to get the recipe, but here are a few of the things that went into it.
