Italian potato salad is super simple and super delicious! It's so good, they'll come back for more, for sure.
Here's a tip: When making potato salad, its always best to allow potatoes to cool completely before slicing them. This will prevent them from breaking apart while slicing.
EASY Italian Potato Salad
- 4 baking potatoes, boiled
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
- 1/4 cup black olives - sliced
- 1 celery stalk- thinly sliced
- 2 to 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 1 to 2 Tbsp. white balsamic vinegar or apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 lemon -juiced
- 2 pinches of MC Italian seasonings
- salt and pepper to taste
In a medium size pot filled with water, boil potatoes for about 20 minutes, or until a knife can easily slide through the potato. Drain. Then run cold water over them for a few minutes to stop the cooking process. Set potatoes aside and allow to cool completely.
Meantime, prepare your vinaigrette. In a small mixing bowl, mix olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice and seasonings. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
When potatoes are completely cool, slice potatoes in half horizontally, then slice again each half vertically into 1/2" cubes, then transfer to a mixing bowl.
Add onions, olives, celery, and vinaigrette and toss gently until well combined. Potatoes tend to absorb the oil very quickly, so if you feel you need to add a little more, drizzle a little extra. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
