Greek Potato Salad

This light Greek Potato Salad is full of a bright, fresh tang from the freshly squeezed lemon juice, an incredible fresh crunch from the red onions and cucumber this all comes together with the fresh fill and oregano to create perfect Greek flavors. Step away from the mayo and opt for my family’s favorite summer side dish.

Greek Potato Salad

Summertime is the time of quick meals, picnics, BBQs and cookouts. As much as I am a big fan of mayonnaise, I have never been able to get down with the idea of it on my cold salads. I have never enjoyed it on potato salad, coleslaw or pasta salad. Not sure why. Maybe it’s too many picnics in my youth, seeing the salad and the mayo baking away in the sun, no one has a care in the world. I won’t ruin it for those of you that like it, but it’s just not for me.

This particular rendition on a classic potato salad is something I grew up with and always loved. Simple fresh ingredients and classic Greek flavors come together to create the most perfect summer side dish.

I personally enjoy tender red potatoes with the skin left on, but feel free to swap in your favorite salad-making potato variety. Any will do. I find this salad best served alongside grilled marinated leg of lamb (recipe coming later this week), a side of kalamata olives and cubes of feta cheese. It would also be a great compliment to my Lamb Gyro Bowls with Tzatziki, Greek Lamb Meatballs or Stuffed Grape Leaves.
