Lemon Potato Salad Ingredients:
Potatoes: You can use red or white potatoes of any size, it is a personal preference. Just cut them into medium-sized cubes.
Spring Onion and Parsley: Both will give a bit of green to this salad; you can replace either of them with chivs if you like.
Olive Oil: Extra virgin olive oil is the best to use in making this salad.
Lemon Juice: Gives the lovely tangy flavour to the salad.
Seasonings: Ground black pepper, salt, and cumin
Mustard: I like to use Dijon mustard because it gives a nice flavour to this potato salad.
How to make this lemon garlic potato salad?
Cooking the Potatoes: Wash, peel, and cut the potatoes into medium size cubes. Then boil some salted water to cook the potatoes in for 5-6 minutes (don't overcook them) and drain well.
Making the Dressing: In a mixing bowl, combine parsley, onion, mustard, olive oil, salt, pepper, cumin, sugar, lemon juice, and garlic.
Toss the hot potatoes in the dressing and mix. Serve hot or cold.
Make sure to test the potatoes while cooking with a fork or knife to avoid overcooked potatoes.
This salad can be served warm or cold. In both cases you need to combine the dressing with the potatoes while they’re warm.
Instead of boiling the potatoes you can cover them in aluminium foil and bake them in the oven about 30-35 minutes.
If you want to add more flavours to this recipe, you can add nuts, cheese, or any herbs you prefer like thyme, rosemary, or oregano.
