  • 1 1/2 teaspoons whole-grain mustard

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Cover potatoes with water by 1 inch in a 3- to 4-quart saucepan

  • Drain the water
  • Meanwhile, whisk together shallot, mustards, vinegar, pepper, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl
  • Add oil in a slow stream, whisking until emulsified
  • When potatoes are just cool enough to handle, cut them into large cubes
  • Add to the vinaigrette along with parsley and toss to combine
  • Serve warm or at room temperature
