Lemon and herb potato salad

One vegetable that I struggle to use when the warmer months arrive is potatoes. In Winter I wont hesitate in cranking up the oven and roasting some potatoes to perfection. Or creating a creamy mash to serve alongside a rich and hearty casserole. But in Summer, I tend to crave salads and lighter meals, to which potatoes do not generally lend themselves. Or do they? Feeling particularly inspired a few weeks ago, I came up with a use for the bag of potatoes that was feeling rather lonely in our pantry. salad Potatoes – peeled and boiled until tender – then combined with olive oil, a wee bit of yoghurt, lemon juice and zest – and lots of mint, parsley and pepper.

IMG_5259 And the herb + lemon combination worked just beautifully in keeping this dish feeling light and lovely. IMG_5268 So it seems potatoes do have a place on our menu this Summer! What about you? Any fun Summer potato dishes you’d care to share?

  1. Yum! I love potato salads. One favourite is warm potatoes with finely sliced gherkins, some capers drizzled with olive oil and lemon juice (mixed together). Tangy and not too heavy on the stomach.

  2. I have a favourite summer salad of smoky potato, corn and beans – highly recommend it. I understand your feelings about potatoes and summer but I still love some bangers and mash with lots of green veg and canned beetroot in summer. I think lemon and herbs are just the summer spirit to add to potatoes – your salad looks great
