This baby potato salad recipe comes together quickly and with minimal work. Half the cook time involves patiently waiting for the potatoes to cool.

I love baby potatoes – they’re really easy to deal with – you don’t need to worry about peeling them and they cook fast.

This potato salad does have a mayo-based dressing, but the herbs keep it tasting really nice and fresh. It’s definitely not cloying and heavy like some potato salad dressings are.

If you’ve got mint and chives in your garden, this recipe is the perfect way to use ’em up!
