The key to this potato salad is its powerful ingredients: Cured herring and bracing red wine vinegar give each bite a pop of flavor. Boulud will just as soon toss in mackerel, sardines, or anchovy, so feel free to swap in your preferred seafood.


  • 1 lb. fingerling potatoes
  • 14 cup finely chopped white onion
  • 2 tbsp. finely chopped chives
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. white wine
  • 2 cured herring fillets cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 5 oz.)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


Step 1

In a medium saucepan, cover the potatoes with water and boil until tender, 15 minutes. Cool slightly, then slice into 1-inch pieces.

Step 2

Toss potatoes in a large bowl with remaining ingredients and serve warm.
