    Take a medium mixing bowl and add in white wine vinegar, coarse-grained mustard, sugar and potato slices. Top the ingredients with a pinch of salt and whisk them together for a few seconds until the salt dissolves thoroughly. Set this dressing aside at room temperature until you prepare the salad.

    Take a medium pot and place the potatoes in it. Pour in cold water until the potatoes are completely covered. Set the pot on the stove and bring it to boil over medium heat. Once the water starts boiling, slow down the heat and let the potatoes simmer for 18 to 20 minutes or until tender. Remove the pot from the stove and drain the boiled potatoes with great care.  Place the potatoes in a large bowl and cover it with a foil wrapping sheet to keep them warm until you mix the other ingredients.
