greek potato salad

I’m generally not a huge fan of potato salads, or potatoes – with the exception of sweet potatoes – for that matter, but this is definitely an exception. Perhaps if you throw in green beans, feta, and kalamata olives I can be convinced to eat anything, but this? I’m still longing for the leftovers. And that never happens in my world.

Maybe I like it so much because it is essentially the opposite of your typical potato salad, found in every deli counter, but I’d rather think it’s because it doesn’t contain a week’s worth of mayo per serving. Not to mention that it just tastes perfect.

Go ahead, make this for your next picnic or summer BBQ – I can assure you that it will go over well with any crowd. And if you have any leftovers? I’ll happily accept them. :)

Thanks to Georgene for sharing this delicious recipe!

Greek Potato Salad - 6-8 servings

Boil potatoes until tender. Drain water from pan. Pour 1/2 cup dressing over hot potatoes and mix so all potatoes are coated with dressing. Set aside and let cool.

Steam green beans until tender-crisp. Cut into 2 inch pieces. Let cool.

Pour remaining dressing (1/4 cup) over remaining ingredients and toss together.

    That looks absolutely phenomenal. I love potatoes, but potato salad freaks me out because of the mayo. This sounds like a really great alternative, though, and so summery!

    I love Newman’s Ceasar dressing! But I’ve never used it for potato salad (usually I marinate veggies in it and then grill them – amazing). This sounds SO good.

    Hate to point this out but your packaged Caesar salad dressing is likely just as bad for you as mayo, if not worse.

      Yes, definitely in terms of calories, fat, etc.
      I have no issue with mayo, just don’t care for it, or really care for most potato salads actually!

        Have you every looked into authentic German/Austrian/Eastern block potato salads? Usually built on a thickish vinaigrette, waxy potatoes and plenty of added veg.
