Tips for making Greek Potato Salad:
- I like to buy the baby gold potatoes for this salad because they’re quick to boil, and are more creamy on the inside than your classic baking potato.
- 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!
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.
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.
