If you are Italian, you might say ‘this is not Italian Potato Salad!’ Well… I just created a potato salad with the ingredients that I think are Italian such as Italian herb mix and semi-dried tomatoes. This is my favourite potato salad and I like it more than My Family’s Potato Salad!
Baby Red Potatoes 500g *OR large red potatoes
Semi-Dried Tomatoes 8 to 10 *can be replaced by cherry tomatoes
Celery 1 to 2 stalks *sliced
Red Onion 1/4 *sliced
Black Olives OR Kalamata Olives *pitted, cut in half
Parsley *roughly chopped
Basil *roughly torn
Olive Oil 2 tablespoons
Lemon Juice 1 tablespoon
Salt 1/4 teaspoon
Italian Herbs 1 to 2 teaspoons
Wash baby Red Potatoes well. Cut them in half or quarter if large. Cook them with skin on in salted water until tender.
Make the dressing by mixing all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Add Celery, Tomatoes, Red Onion into the bowl. Drain the cooked potatoes and add to the bowl, mix well.
Add all other ingredients and combine well.
