🥔How To Make This Potato Salad

1️ Step one: Boil potatoes and eggs

Rinse potatoes to remove any dirt. Place them into a large pot on the stove with enough water  to cover them. Add some salt.

Bring to boil on medium heat. You can use any type of potatoes you have, but red skin potatoes are more recommended for this salad. There are more firm and better hold their shape.

Depending on potatoes type and size, boiling time may vary. Boil until fork tender, around 25-40 minutes. 6-8 Minutes before turning off the heat, put in the eggs in to boil together. Take off the eggs, drain potatoes and let them cool.

2️ Step two: Prepare and cut the vegetables

Meanwhile, wash the lettuce and prepare the other vegetables. You can julienne the red onion and put in a small bowl with cold water to release some of the zing. Peel off the eggs and potatoes.

Cut peppers, spring onions, radishes, and pickles. Finely chop the fresh herbs. Put them in a large bowl along with the olives and the drained red onion.

Add the chopped eggs (thin slices) and cut potatoes in medium size cubes/chunks. Add them on top.

3️ Step three: Season and blend all together

Season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix the vinegar and the sunflower/olive oil and pour it over the salad. Add a little water if the vinegar is too strong. You can even add a little vinegar from the pickles jar.

Mix everything with care so all the flavors blend nicely together.

If you decide to add lettuce, this must be the last ingredient to add to the salad. Cut the lettuce leaves (optional) and easily blend them in.

💡Tips About This Recipe

  • You can make ahead (5-6 hours) this potato salad and keep it in the fridge so the flavors really blend well. Keep the lettuce out and only add it before serving.
  • You can spice it up with smoked paprika or a little sweet chili
  • You can replace half of vinegar with pickle juice from the jar
  • You can replace black olives with any kind you have to spare
  • It’s best to serve it fresh, because the lettuce does not preserve well

Notes

My grandmother used to make us a very simple version of this potato salad - just potatoes, onion and eggs. You may try this version too. It's still delicious.
She also only used sunflower oil, as it has a more neutral flavor. I like to replace just 1 tbsp of sunflower oil with olive oil. Try this version and see if you like it. Yum.
Golden potatoes are more mushy and better absorbing all flavors. Make sure you try that version too. You can also spice it up a little, feel free to experiment and make it yours.
