Some warmer weather at last – it must be time for salads now. I hope so, anyway, as I love salads of any type but in particular I love a potato salad. This salad is very easy to make and tastes wonderful.
750 grams of potatoes, thickly sliced (kipfler or chat are good)
1 teaspoon of salt, or to your liking
80ml of olive oil
125ml (½ cup) of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of sumac (available from supermarkets), optional
Salt and pepper to season
1 small green capsicum, diced
2 red chillies diced and de-seeded (optional)
A handful of chopped mint
6 spring onions, finely sliced
- Cook the potatoes for 10 minutes or until just cooked.
- Place oil, lemon juice and sumac in a bowl and stir to mix, then season.
- Pour half of the dressing over the hot potatoes and stir well.
- Cool the potato mixture.
- Add the capsicum, chilli, spring onions and herbs and the remainder of the dressing.
