Light & Lemony Potato Salad

I enjoy finding new potato salad recipes to try rather than the traditional mustard or mayo type. I wanted to share this one even though most of you are into Fall recipes right now. Since it's still in the 90's here - we're using recipes for hot weather! This is a delicious side with some grilled meat - yum! And it can be served room temp or chilled. To be fair, my kiddo did not care for the lemon flavor, but I loved it and I think you will too if you like lighter flavors.

I tore this recipe out of a magazine a couple years ago - looks like it was Southern Living {and I don't even live in the South y'all - LOL}. :)

Light & Lemony Potato Salad

2 lbs red potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil {I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil}
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
3 green onions, sliced thinly
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped

Cut potatoes in eighths and place in large pot. Cover with cold salted water and bring to a boil. Boil 15 minutes or just until tender. Drain and cool for 5 minutes.

In large bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice, salt, dry mustard, and ground pepper. Whisk together. Add warm potatoes, green onions, and parsley. Toss gently until thoroughly coated. Serve at room temp or chilled. Makes approx. 6 servings.

So simple and fresh-tasting! Another non-traditional potato salad recipe that I like is Roasted Rosemary Potato Salad.
