French Potato Salad

  • 7 potatoes, approximately 2 pounds
  • 1 teaspoon chopped tarragon
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallots
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • Pepper, freshly ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon red hot pepper flakes

Rinse and drain the potatoes but do not peel them. Put them in a large saucepan. Add cold water to cover and bring to the boil. Simmer for about 20 minutes, or until tender. Cut the potatoes lengthwise in half. Cut each half into thin slices. Put the potatoes in a bowl and add the remaining ingredients, including pepper. Stir gently.
