Shaved Fennel and Fingerling Potato Salad
Carson Downing


  • 1 pound fingerling potatoes, halved lengthwise

  • 3 tablespoon white wine vinegar

  • 2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • ½ teaspoon sugar

  • 1 fennel bulb, trimmed, cored, and halved

  • ¾ cup julienned yellow bell pepper

  • ½ cup sliced green onions

  • ½ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley


  1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan. Add 1 teaspoon kosher salt and enough water to cover potatoes. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until potatoes are just tender. Drain; return potatoes to saucepan.

  2. In a small bowl whisk together white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, sugar, an additional 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, and a pinch black pepper until sugar is dissolved. Gradually drizzle in 3 tablespoons olive oil, whisking to emulsify. Pour half of the vinaigrette over the warm potatoes; toss to coat.

  3. Using a mandoline or a sharp knife, thinly shave fennel bulb halves lengthwise. Place in a large bowl with yellow bell pepper, green onions, and chopped parsley.

  4. Add potatoes and remaining vinaigrette to fennel mixture; toss to coat. Serves 4.
