Ingredients

  • 1 1/2

    pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

  • Kosher salt

  • 1/2

    tablespoon red wine vinegar, plus more for covering the onion

  • 1

    small red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1/4

    cup picked tarragon leaves

  • 1

    cup loosely packed parsley leaves and tender stems

  • 2

    small cloves garlic

  • 3/4

    cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • Pinch cayenne pepper powder

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/2

    cup pitted and halved black olives, such as Kalamata

Directions

Place potatoes, 1 tablespoon salt, 1/2 tablespoon vinegar, and 3 cups tepid water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally until salt is dissolved. Reduce to a bare simmer and cook until potatoes are completely tender and show no resistance when poked with a paring knife or cake tester, about 17 minutes. Drain potatoes and allow to cool to warm room temperature, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, add onion to a medium bowl and add just enough vinegar to cover. Let stand until onion is tender and lightly pickled, about 20 minutes. Using a blender, immersion blender, or food processor, blend tarragon, parsley, garlic, and oil until well pureed. Mix in cayenne pepper and season with salt and pepper. Drain onions. In a serving bowl, toss potatoes with tarragon pesto, onions, and olives, and serve.
