  1. Place the potatoes in a large pot. Add enough cold water to exceed the top of the potatoes by 2 inches. Place the pot over high heat and add one teaspoon of the salt. Bring the water to a boil and cook them uncovered until they are just tender through, approximately 20-25 minutes. Drain the potatoes in a colander and allow them to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt and mustard. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Add the onions, parsley, tarragon, and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and stir them until combined.
  3. Transfer the potatoes to a large bowl and pour the dressing over them. Mix them well with a wooden spoon, breaking some of the potatoes, so that some of them are a bit mashed and the ingredients are well combined. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least one hour or up to 1 day.
