Rosette is most definitely the nicest person I have ever met, She also makes incredible food and a fresh, light tasting potato salad. Yes light! My husband did work on her house and we all became fast friends. Lucky for us she likes to cook and share her food.
We have all had the mayonnaise drenched potatoes that people call salad but I can not stomach it, mostly because I really do not like mayonnaise, Nayonaise or any other version of aise.
So when Rosette said she was making me potato salad, I panicked, I’ll always say thank you and take a bite. But much to my surprise this is what she gave me.
Did I mention this is easy? Well it is, very easy and you should go make it right now.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 bag of Baby Red potatoes (I had some left from my last dish I posted)
2 lemons (juice and a little zest)
3 tablespoons Olive Oil (less or more to taste)
1 large garlic clove, minced
Salt & fresh Cracked Pepper (to taste)
WHAT YOU DO:
Boil the potatoes until just tender, then let them cool. If they are over cooked they will not hold together well. Be sure to boil them whole, this makes a big difference.
Once they are cooled enough to handle cut them into quarters (bite sized) try to make them uniform in size.
Place them in a large bowl and add all the ingredients.
GENTLY mix them so they are coated with all the flavors.
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
The lemon adds a freshness that a cooked potato just does not have. This is great side dish and is perfect for a Picnic, Barbecue or party and you do not have to worry about the mayo in the heat/sun. Just before serving put a little chopped parsley (my make all food look great herb) and a little drizzle of olive oil….pretty!!
