How To Make Greek Lemon Potato Salad

  • 1 and 1/2 pounds baby new, or petite potatoes (I used Petite Gold)
  • 8 scallions thinly sliced, white and green parts
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh oregano don't use dried ~ substitute fresh dill, rosemary, thyme, or parsley
  • salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • dressing
  • 1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp prepared mustard
  • 1 small clove of garlic finely minced
  • zest of 1/2 lemon
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • several good grindings of black pepper
  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling water until they are just tender, and easily pierced with the tip of a sharp knife. Drain and cut into bite sized pieces, in quarters or in half, depending on the size of your potatoes.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking make the dressing. Put all the ingredients in a small jar or measuring cup and blend with a stick blender until bright yellow and creamy (emulsified.) Be sure to taste it now to see if you need more salt, more lemon, or whatever.
  3. While the potatoes are hot, dress them in several tablespoons of the dressing, gently tossing to make sure they all get coated. Let cool, then cover and refrigerate until cold.
  4. When the potatoes are chilled, add the green onions and fresh oregano. Season with salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste. Toss with more dressing and serve.
