Lemony Potato Salad

This potato salad recipe does not get any easier to prepare, and with a mild lemon flavor it really wakes-up and compliments grilled meats.

Lemony Potato Salad
Serves 4-6
Recipe from Food Network

2 pounds russet potatoes (note: I used small red skinned, without peeling), peeled and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 lemon
1-1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Place the potatoes in a pot of salted water; bring to a simmer and cook until tender.  Drain and cool slightly.  Mix the mayonnaise and parsley in a large bowl.  Grate in the zest of half of a lemon; add the juice of the lemon half.  Fold in the potatoes and add 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, and pepper to taste; refrigerate until ready to serve.

  1. Such an easy recipe to have so much flavor! Lemon really perks things up, doesn't it? Makes everything fresh and bright. I've never tried it in a potato salad, but will the next time…picnic time is coming fast!Happy Easter to you, Velva!


  2. I'm not terribly fond of regular potato salad but I could totally do this one and I think my kiddos would enjoy it, too. They're extremely fond of lemon in their savory foods.~ingrid


  3. Love that the ingredient list is short and yields an awesomely yummy potato salad. I usually find them too… eggy, milky, sickening…but lemon in these totally fix that!


  4. Hi Velva, That potato salad really looks good. We had potato salad for our Easter dinner today (along with ham and baked beans). It was good–but I'll bet your potato salad is better. Thanks for sharing.Hugs,Betsy
