We really like this type of potato salad.
It is made with oil and lemon rather than mayonnaise.
Although this recipe calls for hard boiled eggs, they can easily be left out and not really missed.
The important ingredients are the red potatoes, fresh squeezed lemon, extra virgin olive oil,
and fresh chopped parsley.
You can also chop other things like red onion, scallion, or black olives and add them in as well.
Serve it at room temperature to really bring out the flavor.
It is a simple recipe, but hearty and easy to make.
4-5 pounds of red potatoes, peeled, boiled and cubed.
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped ( optional)
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped fine
1/4 cup olive oil
Juice of three fresh lemons or limes
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup red onion or scallion chopped fine ( optional)
First make a dressing by mixing together the olive oil, fresh lemon, chopped parsley,salt
and pepper- then set aside.
Boil potatoes, peel and cube ( I like to peel mine after boiling)
Boil eggs, peel and chop
Place potatoes and eggs in a large bowl while they are still hot.
Pour dressing over hot potatoes and eggs and mix well.
Taste and adjust seasonings if needed ( a little more oil, lemon, salt?)
Add chopped red onion, chopped scallion, or chopped black olives if desired.
