Substitution
No tarragon? You can make Dilled New Potato Salad instead by using white vinegar and 1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried dill weed.
Success
Be sure not to overcook the potatoes, or they will fall apart in the salad. When the potatoes are done, you should be able to just pierce them with a fork.
