  • 2 1/2 pounds small potatoes, scrubbed and halved
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces hot-smoked salmon (available at specialty stores and some supermarkets), flaked
  • 3 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh tarragon, for serving


  1. Prepare an ice-water bath. Bring potatoes to a boil in a large pot of water; season generously with salt. Slowly add eggs to water. Cook eggs 7 minutes, then remove with a slotted spoon and transfer to ice-water bath. Continue to cook potatoes until easily pierced with the tip of a knife, about 3 minutes more. Drain and let cool slightly.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together mustard, lemon juice, and onion. Gradually whisk in oil. Fold in potatoes and salmon; transfer to a platter. Peel eggs; halve crosswise. Arrange on top of salad. Season eggs with salt and pepper; sprinkle with tarragon and serve.
