I really love the way the way the Greeks do their potato salad, its really simple and the taste is fantastic! The olive oil and lemon dressing keeps it light and perfect for summer. A good healthy alternative to the potato salads loaded with mayo! I love it served as one of the salads served with some nice fish or meat. It goes with anything really, great for picnics and barbecues too.
Just be sure to cook your potatoes till they are getting just about soft, or they tend to break as you mix in the dressing. I would have preferred mind to be cooked a few less minutes then I did yesterday.
Recipe (serves 2)
2 chopped salad onions/spring onions or 1 small regular onion
500 grams potatoes cut into 1/2 inch pieces
chopped fresh oregano 2 teaspoons or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
chopped fresh parsley 2 teaspoons if you like
1/3 cup olive oil
2tsp lemon juice
1 tsp white vinegar
salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
When boiling your potatoes, use salted water and do not overcook them, they should be just about be getting soft when you drain them in the colander.
Mix your lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, salt and peppers, add the chopped spring onions and chopped oregano leaves, and whisk with a fork to combine. Pour the dressing over your cooked potatoes and mix. You can now chill them for a bit before serving or serve them warm if its winter.
