Because this is literally one of the easiest, boiled potato recipes ever, and one of the easiest potato recipes in my repertoire. The reason for why is because we simply, lightly boil potato then toss in a lemony, garlicky, very buttery herbed dressing and That. Is. It. SO easy. SO forgivable. SO perfect for pretty much anything because this can be served warm or at room temperature. …so you can make this recipe in advance a bit, then let it sit – no worries – then cart to wherever you have to go.

There are three important keys to this recipe to ensure food success:

  1. Do not, for the love of all of creation, overcook the potatoes. We want them to hold their shape and not fall apart when tossed in the vinaigrette, so not overcooking is crucial.
  2. Use the freshest of fresh herbs. This recipe is all about the herbs, honestly, and the potatoes are just the delivery vehicle. So, Fresh Herbs.
  3. UNsalted butter. I believe this key to be crucial in all cooking, because salted butter tastes nasty, but it is especially true here. All we have going on are simple potatoes and herbs, so that dreamy sweet butter flavor is definitely what we want.
