Creamy Potato Salad with Fresh Herbs and Grainy Dijon Mustard

I don’t know about you but I am so over this winter. I decided I was going to rebel against it so I bought tons of fresh herbs and lemon to make a summer inspired dinner. I made this potato salad, served it with my Lemon-Garlic Marinated Grilled Chicken [4] and steamed asparagus.   This potato is so creamy and rich, the grainy Dijon adds a sweetness and depth of flavour that is incredible. It made me feel better!securedownload-62 [5]

A recipe for a rich, delectable potato salad with lemon and  fresh herbs and totally healthy 🙂



56 Medium red or white skinned potatoes (1 to 1.5 pound), skin on

The juice of half a lemon

1 tbsp grainy mustard

2 tbsp light mayonnaise

½ Cup fat free sour cream

2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley (a small handful)

10 Basil leaves, chopped

3 Green onions, sliced

½ Small red onion, thinly sliced

2 Celery stalks, sliced

Salt (about ½ tsp, or to taste)

Pepper (about ¼ tsp, or to taste)


Cook the potatoes until fork tender (you can boil or steam); keep the skin on the potatoes.

When the potatoes are cooked, set them aside to cool.

Once cooled, chop the potatoes into large chunks.

In a large a bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, mustard, mayonnaise and sour cream; season with the salt and pepper.

Add the rest of the ingredients; mix well.

Wrap and refrigerate the potato salad or serve immediately.

When you’re ready to serve the salad, taste and adjust seasoning,


  1. Let the potatoes cool completely before cutting them; it helps keep them from becoming smushy.
  2. You can use white wine vinegar in place of the lemon juice, about 2 tbsp.
  3. The dressing becomes thicker as it sits on the potatoes.
