There are so many ways to enjoy fingerling potatoes, and one of my favorites is this fingerling potato salad. Steaming or boiling the potatoes and then topping them with a creamy dressing is all it takes to make this delicious dish.

My family loves this flavorful side dish recipe. It presents nicely when made with different colored potatoes. Scallions and celery give this salad a delicious texture and flavor. You can substitute red onions for the scallion, and try fresh thyme, parsley, or other fresh herbs in addition to the chives.

You can serve this fingerling potato salad with so many different main dishes, like this chile lime salmon or this Mexican frittata. Leftovers taste great the next day, too.

Try my Instant Pot potato salad, Instant Pot German potato salad, and air fryer potatoes for other ways to enjoy this versatile vegetable.
