About 9 medium size red unpeeled potatoes, washed and diced
3 celery stalks, keep the leaves if you have them
½ cup black olives, halved
1 green pepper, diced
¼ - ½ cup grated red cabbage, optional
¼ cup red onion chopped
Fresh basil, oregano, parsley
½ cup olive oil
Juice from 1 medium sized lemon (about ¼ cup)
1 tsp Dijon mustard
3 garlic cloves
1 TBSP grated parmesan cheese
Yields: about ¾ cup dressing
Once unpeeled potatoes are washed and diced, steam them for about 15-20 minutes, make sure the potatoes are not too soft. Place them in a bowl to cool. Prepare other vegetables which need to be cut. Add them to the potatoes, toss and set aside to cool some more and prepare the Lemon Dressing.
This dressing can be made in a food processor or with a Braun blender. I chose to use the Braun blender as it was easier to clean. It chopped the garlic well. Process all ingredients in food processor or blend them with a hand Braun type blender. Add Lemon Dressing to potatoes and vegetables. Toss, add salt and pepper to taste. This can be served immediately or set in fridge to cool for at least 1 hour.
Potato Salad Serves 4-6 people
We love plain lemon on salad as well. Do you have any lemon dressing ideas you'd like to share? I would love to try new lemon dressing recipes. Any of you have lemons growing in your back yard?
We love salads and ate this Potato Salad with a green vegetable salad. Bon Appetit!
