Ingredients

  • 3 pounds medium Yukon gold potatoes
  • 3 tablespoons salt, plus additional for seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup minced chives
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, chopped fine
  • 1 tablespoon fresh tarragon leaves, chopped fine
  • 2 cups lemon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Zest of 4 lemons, optional

Directions

In a large saucepan, add potatoes and water to cover by 1-inch. Bring to boil over high heat. Lower the heat to a simmer, and cook until tender, about 25 to 30 minutes. Dry by setting out on a board or in a colander.

Quarter potatoes and set on a sheet pan in 1 layer to dry. Once they're dry, place potatoes in a bowl. Mash with a fork until broken up but not smooth. Add pepper, chives, thyme and tarragon. Season with salt. Mix well. Add the oil a half cup at a time. You may find you do not need all the oil. Add lemon zest, if using. Mix well.

Chef's note: Cook the potatoes whole so they don't get water logged and dilute the flavor.
