24 ounces small red potatoes, halved or quartered

24 ounce small purple potatoes, halved or quartered

Kosher salt and ground black pepper

4 tablespoons red wine vinegar, divided

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

¼ cup chopped fresh tarragon

8 ounces goat milk cheddar or gouda, diced

2 cups fresh blueberries

1 cup diced roasted red peppers

Place the potatoes in a large pot. Add enough water to cover the potatoes by 1 inch. Add a hefty pinch of salt, then bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until fork tender, but not falling apart, 12-15 minutes. Drain the potatoes, then spread them on a rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper, then sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of the vinegar. Set aside to cool completely.

In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining 2 tablespoons vinegar, the olive oil, mustard and tarragon. When the potatoes have cooled, add them to the bowl, as well as the cheddar, blueberries and roasted red peppers. Stir gently to coat with the dressing. Chill for 1 hour to let flavors develop.

Serves 10.
