Cookout week is coming to an end. I hope you liked the recipes I created for this event. I really did enjoy myself creating not only this French Herbed Potato Salad but the:

Lemon Turmeric Grilled Chicken is a healthy and flavorful chicken that you can grill up for your family. It is a new twist on lemon chicken.

Grilled Peach and Fig Balsamic Vinegarette combines the smoky grilled taste of peaches into a wonderful vinegarette that is perfect for a salad. It is the perfect summer dressing.

I needed this event to really kick me into gear. Why? Well, Seduction in the Kitchen is undergoing a lot of positive changes.  Doing an event like this has shown me that with my creativity with recipes, I can also help steer Seduction into its next phase.

I am so happy that the timing of Cookout Week came when it did. It really helps motivate me to see a larger picture with what I can do with Seduction in the Kitchen. It is a good picture that I see.

As I have mentioned in both the Lemon Turmeric Grilled Chicken and Grilled Peach and Fig Balsamic Vinegarette I got a chance to work with The French Farm. I really love the fig mustard they sent me. This mustard just takes salads to a whole new level.

In all honesty, when I saw the products The French Farm has, I was drawn to this mustard. I immediately saw this French Herbed Potato Salad pop in my mind. It was the reason I decided on the fig mustard, I knew I had to make this potato salad.

I admit Ina Gardner French Potato Salad is what inspired me to do my version of it. I wanted to tweak it in a way that really brings the flavor out. One the tweaks was to add lemon to the chicken broth.

Most potato salads are mayonnaise based. A French potato salad is an oil and vinegar based. The lemon and the added fresh basil was a way I could really turn up the flavor in this potato salad. Plus it would also make it healthy as well I felt.

      Thank you! I was stuck in a mind frame that potato salad is only mayo based. It wasn’t till I tried an oil and vinegar kind that realized it can be much more!!

    Such a lovely salad. French cuisine is simple and complicated because requires perfection and technique. I enjoy a nice salad and this potato salad is perfect and well balanced. I bet the herbs give it a super nice taste. Can’t wait to try!

    I love this recipe. I am going to try it with vegetable stock as I am a vegetarian. Balsamic vinegar is my favorite dressing.
