My husband is not a fan of mayonnaise, so I'm always on the lookout for non-mayo salads. I saw Mario Batali make this warm potato salad on The Chew, the new food show on ABC, and thought it looked delicious! Plus, who doesn't love Mario Batali! If you haven't checked out The Chew yet, you definitely should, it's a lot of fun to watch, and I keep getting great tips and recipes.

I wanted to give it a try, but I also wanted to make a few tweaks, like roasting the potatoes instead of boiling them, and substituting thyme for marjoram because thyme is one of my favorite herbs.

Do you know what inspired me to make this herb butter? This video from The Chew, the new food show on ABC. It's all about how to save fresh herbs so they don't go to waste.

I had no idea I could save my herbs by  putting them in water in the fridge. After I made this herb butter, the basil I bought at the grocery store lasted more than a week this way! I'm so used to watching my herbs wilt after two days in the fridge and eventually throwing them out, this was such a great tip. I will be putting my unused herbs out like flowers all over my house now!
