This is a great potato salad recipe for
a picnic. The dressing for it is not mayonnaise based so I tend to think this
salad is a little safer for a picnic.
Greek Potato Salad With Feta Vinaigrette
2 pounds peeled red potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
(about 6 cups)
2 T. red wine vinegar
1/4 C. extra-virgin olive oil
1 T. Dijon mustard
2 T. chopped fresh oregano
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. black pepper
1/2 C. halved pitted kalamata olives
1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced
1/2 C. chopped roasted red peppers
1 small green pepper, diced
1/2 C. tiny-diced red onion
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (about 1 cup crumbled cheese)
1/4 C. chopped fresh Italian parsley
Steam potatoes until very tender, 12 to 14 minutes.
Meanwhile, in large bowl, make dressing by whisking together vinegar, olive oil,
mustard, oregano, salt and pepper. When potatoes are still warm, toss them with
dressing and set aside until cool. Stir in olives, cucumber, red and green
peppers, onion, cheese and parsley.
Makes 8 servings.
