Greek Potato Salad (Egg-Free)

Greek Potato Salad (Egg-Free)

Adapted from Cat Cora. The original recipe called for fresh dill which I did not have, so I just left it out. Although some people say it is better to cook potatoes whole (so they don't get water-logged), I cut my potatoes into even pieces so they would cook faster, and this potato salad came out just fine.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds medium-sized red potatoes washed and scrubbed
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Dressing

  • 1 medium red onion halved and sliced into half moons
  • 1/4 cup thinly chopped scallions green and white parts
  • 15 pitted and halved kalamata olives
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano leaves
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

Potatoes:

  1. Cut potatoes in half if large; otherwise you can leave them whole. Place potatoes in an 8 quart pot along with enough water to cover and 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and cook until just tender, about 20-30 minutes depending on large the potatoes are. Use a fork or knife to test the potatoes. Potatoes are done when fork pierces potatoes through. Drain well. Cut potatoes into quarters. Reserve.

Dressing:

  1. Combine the onions, spring onions, olives, oregano, olive oil, vinegar, and lemon juice in a medium sized salad bowl.
