Ingredients

1/2 cup low-salt chicken broth
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup olive oil
4 scallions chopped, white and green parts
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Boil whole potatoes in salted water until tender, about 35 minutes. Drain, return to pot and place over heat for 2 minutes to evaporate remaining liquid. Cut potatoes while warm into 1/3-inch slices. Add to dressing and toss. Let stand at room temperature for at least 1 hour before serving.
