Much like everything Lebanese people do, this potato salad is next level. It is a punch of flavor; the potatoes are just there for the ride.  Make this for your next BBQ party and punch everyone’s taste buds, hard!

 

The What:
  • 5 potatoes, peeled & boiled
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

 

The How: 

Peel, dice, and boil the potatoes in salted water. Boil until tender. Drain the potatoes and cool slightly.

Place the potatoes, green onions, parsley, and mint in a bowl and gently toss.

In a measuring cup, place the crushed garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper and whisk together.

Pour the dressing over the potatoes and toss even more gently.

Allow the salad to sit for a while at room temperature, allowing the potatoes to absorb the dressing.

It might seem like a lot of sauce for a small amount of potatoes, but it’s not, it’s just the Lebanese way; remember it’s a punch of flavor.
