Marinated Potato Salad


5 medium (about 1 1/2 lb) red-skinned potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
3 tbsp fat-free, low-sodium or regular chicken broth
2 tbsp olive oil
1 1/2 tbsp plus 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 large celery stalk, thinly sliced
3 tbsp chopped red onion or other sweet onion
1 1/2 tsp Dijon-style mustard
3/4 tsp basil
3/4 tsp dried thyme leaves
1/4 tsp salt, or to taste (optional)
2-3 drops hot pepper sauce


Combine the potatoes and enough water to cover in a large saucepan. Cover the pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer 6 to 11 minutes, until the potatoes are tender but not soft when pierced with a fork. Cool under cold running water. Drain well in a colander. While the potatoes are cooking, in a large bowl or serving dish, combine the broth, oil, and vinegar. Stir to mix. Add the celery, onion, mustard, basil, thyme, salt (if desired), and hot pepper sauce. Stir to mix well. To assemble the salad, add the potatoes, carefully stirring with a large spoon to coat them with the dressing mixture. Be careful not to break up the potatoes. Cover and refrigerate several hours, stirring occasionally, to allow flavors to blend. Leftover salad will keep for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.
