While still warm, these potatoes are tossed with a tangy mustard and vinegar mixture; this way, they soak up the flavors as they cool.


  • 1 ½ pounds white new potatoes, scrubbed

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • ¼ cup white-wine vinegar

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon whole-grain mustard

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 stalk celery, thinly sliced crosswise

  • ½ cup celery leaves


  1. Place potatoes in a medium saucepan, and cover with cold salted water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook, until just tender, 12 to 14 minutes. Drain; set aside to cool slightly.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine vinegar, Dijon, and whole-grain mustard; season with salt and pepper.

  3. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, quarter them, and toss with mustard-vinegar mixture. Refrigerate until completely cold, about 2 hours. Add oil, celery, and celery leaves to potatoes; toss and serve.
