  • Make the vinaigrette: Whisk together vinegar, mustard, and reserved cooking water in a small bowl. Gradually add oil, whisking until emulsified. Transfer potatoes to a medium bowl, and drizzle with vinaigrette. Add onion, cornichons, capers, parsley, remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and the pepper. Using a large spatula, gently stir to combine.

FYI - Cornichons are spiced differently than Gherkins.

If that's how you feel, then why do you subscribe to Martha Stewart. these little pickles are marketed as cornichons. just look at the jar they come in, clearly marked CORNICHONS!

Instead of calling them cornichons, why not just call them what they are? - Gherkins???
