LEMONY POTATO SALAD
Good day to you my Galley friends. I hope you are all in fine spirits and good health….and of course ready for some summer time cookin’.
Nothing says summer dining than potato salad. Serve it warm. Serve it cold. Perfect side for back yard grilling, camping or picnicking. Make it creamy or vinegary. It’s all good. Everyone seems to have their favourite but this one is mine. Fresh lemon juice vinaigrette is tossed into steamy hot potatoes so they absorb all of that tangy goodness adding SO much flavour. Serve it warm or chilled (room temperature is best in my opinion). Serve ‘as is’ or try some additions (suggestions in recipe card below)…my favourite is slivers of sun-dried tomatoes and a sprinkle of sliced ripe olives. This recipe, a very Frenchy tangy no-mayo version, inspiration from Nagi at RecipeTinEats, is a winner every time.
And while you wait for me to return, here are more of my potato salad recipes for you to try…
