Herbed Potato Salad



Just a very quick post to share my potato salad recipe. I made this for the wedding, too, and it was really popular! Most potato salads that you buy ready made are so-so - I won't eat them at all, generally, due to the high fat halt and the in general yucky texture. But this one was a lot nicer. I'm still not a huge fan, but Per adored it and wants me to make it all the time now.

It's very easy. You need:
new potatoes, boiled and halved (if you're fussy, peel them - but I didn't.)
creamy yogurt (greek or turkish, fat content about 10%)
mayo
yellow onion, sliced into half-moons
capers
flat leaf parsley
coriander
mint
basil
salt
black pepper

I put all the herbs in the food processor - I was making massive amounts of this, and if you're just making a little, coarsely chop by hand instead. As for amounts, I used mostly parsley, then coriander, not so much mint, and just a little bit of basil. Adjust to your own likings.

Mix a large dollop of yogurt with a small dollop of mayo. Add salt, pepper, capers, onions and all the herbs. Toss with the still warm potatoes. And that's that. Easy, isn't it?

Jaha det här lät ju magert och gott ju - måste jag nog försöka testa till veckan. Måste förresten göra något åt alla mina hemodlade kryddväxter - de växer som ogräs just nu...
