Just tried this out. It's a nice alternative from standard potato salad. I recommend making the dressing in a food processor; my blender didn't break down the garlic and herbs very well. 

Potato Salad With Herb Vinaigrette
Yield: 4 servings
Time: 20 minutes

2 pounds fingerling potatoes, quartered
½  cup fresh basil leaves
½  cup fresh parsley leaves
Juice of 2 lemons
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon tahini
1 teaspoon maple syrup
Black pepper

1. Put the potatoes in a medium pot; add enough water to cover them and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-high and simmer until the potatoes are fully tender, about 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, put the basil, parsley, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, garlic, olive oil, tahini, and maple syrup in a blender; season with salt and pepper. Process until the herbs and garlic are finely chopped.

3. Drain the potatoes and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl, add the vinaigrette, and toss to combine. Taste and adjust the seasoning, and serve at room temperature, or refrigerate before serving. (Store leftover potato salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a few days.)

The only strange things I do to salads is put bacon in them.  Though I have created an interesting coleslaw using lime olive oil and peach vinegar.  Sweet and sour.

Food porn!
You know when you bake an Apple Pie, or any fruit pie for that matter, and you get those oozy baked sugar, chewy-ish bits of leaked fruit that gets all caramelized to the crust?  They're kind of hard to explain..I think they need a name, I'm open to suggestions! :) Anyway, that's ...
