Greek Potato Salad

This Greek Potato Salad is downright special. From one bowl you can taste the unique flavors of Greece. Olive oil, feta cheese, capers, Kalamata olives, lemon juice, and fresh greens take you far away… far away in a traditional Greek village. What I like about this recipe is that it’s quick to prepare and it’s not a dish that requires constant attention.
I usually enjoy this Greek Potato Salad for lunch. It is also suitable for a light lunch at the office, as you can prepare the salad the night before and keep it in the refrigerator and enjoy it the next day. This salad is perfect for serving cold, which makes it a favorite meal even on hot summer evenings when all you want is something light and refreshing.

Greek Potato Salad

Ingredients

1 kg of potatoes
1 red onion
130 g feta cheese
80 g Kalamata olives
2 tablespoons of capers
2 cloves of garlic
50 ml olive oil
the juice from half a lemon
1/2 bunch each of parsley and dill
a few finely chopped mint leaves
1/2 teaspoon each of oregano and black pepper




Method

  1. Start by peeling and cutting the potatoes. If you bought small potatoes, you can cut them in half.
  2. In a large pot, put the potatoes and covered them with water. Boil them on high heat for 20 minutes. Also, cover the pot with a lid to boil faster.
  3. While the potatoes are boiling, you need to prepare in a bowl the mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, pressed garlic, oregano, black pepper, and finely chopped greens.
  4. Cut the onion into small pieces and take the rest of the ingredients to have at hand.
  5. After the potatoes are boiled, drain the water and put them in a bowl. Let them cool for 10 minutes.
  6. Add one by one: the chopped onion, the olives, the capers, and the mixture created earlier.
  7. Mix well, carefully, not to crush the potatoes.
  8. In the end, crumble the feta cheese and add it on top of the delicious Greek Potato Salad.

A culinary delight! I love Greek cuisine and I’m glad that you also love it and enjoy the unique flavor of Greek dishes.

How can you enjoy this Greek Potato Salad?

First of all, it is necessary to use quality ingredients. Both Greek and Italian cuisine are generally prepared with cheap but quality ingredients. Vegetables, fruits, oils, spices, the best and quality are local ones. In this way, we also support small and local businesses and enjoy the freshness and flavor of quality ingredients.

When I’m in another city where I don’t know where I can buy quality ingredients, I tend to go to the market and choose from there, often by instinct. At the market, I try to look for vegetables and fruits that don’t look perfect, but those that are imperfect and with the most intense color. Fruits and vegetables with intense colors are the ones that contain a greater number of beneficial nutrients for our bodies.

Secondly, it is necessary to enjoy it cold in the hot season 🙂 For maximum flavor, follow this simple “rule”. I love to prepare it the night before we go on a picnic, keep it in the fridge overnight, and enjoy this delicious salad with my loved ones the next day.

Last but not least :)) you can enjoy this Greek salad with your loved one and a glass of white wine from the Albariño variety or a glass of red wine from the Pinot Noir variety.
