Tips for making Greek Potato Salad:

  • Make sure you dunk your hot potatoes into a bath of cold water to stop them from cooking any further.
  • Once your potatoes are cooled, quarter them and toss together this super easy potato salad!

MY OTHER RECIPES

We love the bright fresh flavors of Greek food, so I knew that’s where I wanted it to start. I made a creamy tzatziki-inspired sauce, which is basically dill infused greek yogurt that’s brightened up with a little lemon juice. Then I loaded the salad with diced red onion, sliced kalmata olives, sliced cucumbers to add a little extra crunch to contrast the tender potatoes.

I also piled it hight with feta cheese, cause I seriously love that stuff.

The dressing to this creamy Greek Pasta Salad is made with a mixture of greek yogurt, mayo and loads of fresh dill and lemon for extra bright flavors.

I would recommend using fresh dill in the dressing because it brings out the flavor so much more than the dried dill. But if that’s all you have on hand, then the dried dill will also work just fine.

Pour the creamy dill potato salad sauce over the filling and toss to combine.

    This is just in time for the plethora of cucumbers from the garden; I'm thinking replacing 1/2 the potatoes with cucumber chunks. We love tzatziki-- never thought about using it for potato salad.
