Wash baby red potatoes and place them in a large saucepan, cover with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until potatoes are barely tender.
Remove from heat, drain, and cover with cold water to rapidly cool the potatoes. Allow potatoes to cool completely.
Drain potatoes and cut them into quarters.
Put potatoes into a large shallow mixing bowl. Add ¾ cup Green Goddess Salad Dressing and gently fold to thoroughly coat potatoes.
Spoon salad into serving bowl and garnish with green chives and parsley. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
♥ This recipe for Green Goddess Salad Dressing will make approximately 1-2/3 cups of dressing and only ¾ cup of dressing is used for this potato salad.♥ If you do not have Miracle Whip Salad Dressing and prefer its flavor, use a plain flavored mayonnaise and add 1 teaspoon of white vinegar, 1 teaspoon of sugar, and ¼ teaspoon of paprika.♥ Green Goddess Dressing is best when made the day before serving it. This gives the ingredients time to “marry”.♥ Potatoes typically absorb mayonnaise and oil based dressings over time. If making this salad several hours before serving, check salad for dryness at serving time and add additional salad dressing, cream, or milk as needed to moisten salad.
