  • 1 1/2 lbs red potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon minced cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon minced parsley

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • Dice the potatoes. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the potatoes and let them for about 10 minutes until they are cooked through. Use a fork or toothpick to test. Remove the potatoes from the water and let them cool down.
