How To Make Greek Potato Salad

For the Dressing:

  1. In a mason jar or sealable container, combine the red wine vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, oregano, salt, and pepper. Shake until well mixed. Set aside.

For the salad:

  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cook for 12-15 minutes or until they are tender but not too soft. Drain and rinse with cool water.
  2. Transfer the slightly cooled potatoes to a large mixing bowl. Add the feta cheese, diced bell pepper, sliced red onion, Kalamata and Castelvetrano olives, mint, oregano, and parsley. Gently toss to combine.
  3. Pour the dressing over the salad and stir to combine. Allow the salad to cool in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.
  4. Serve chilled or at room temperature with extra dressing, fresh mint, fresh oregano, fresh parsley, or lemon wedges as a garnish and enjoy!

Tips and Variations

  • The dressing is our Greek Salad Dressing, but feel free to use your favorite.
  • Don’t let the potatoes get so soft that they can be mashed. They should be slightly firm but still soft enough to eat. You don’t want them so soft that they fall apart when mixing with the other ingredients and dressing.
  • Once the potatoes are boiled, briefly rinse them in cool (not cold) water to stop any further cooking. However, they do need to be somewhat warm to help absorb the dressing and the flavors of the other ingredients.
  • Yellow or gold potatoes are best in this recipe. You may use small red potatoes if you already have them on hand but be careful when boiling as they will cook much faster than the larger potatoes.
  • Try to cut potatoes into similar bite sized pieces to ensure they boil evenly.
