Greek Style Potato Salad

November 1, 2015

This potato salad is yummy with lots of great flavors like oregano, olives and dills. I prefer my potato salad with a lemon dressing and this one has amazing crunch with cucumbers and pine nuts. It is a great side with burgers or any meat or fish!

  • 4 to 5 large yellow skinned potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch dice

Dressing

  • Juice of 2 large lemons
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl and keep aside.

Place the potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cook till the potatoes are soft but not mushy, about 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and transfer to a serving bowl. While the potatoes are still warm, pour the dressing and mix well and keep aside.

  • ½ English cucumber, chopped
  • ½ cup kalamata olives, chopped
  • ½ cup pine nuts
  • ½ cup fresh dill, chopped
  • ½ cup feta cheese, crumbled

Add all the ingredients to the warm, dressed potatoes. Mix well and check for seasonings. Let the potatoes sit for at least an hour before serving.
