Lemon & Herb Potato Salad

Lemon & Herb Potato Salad
Recipe by Dragon

I've never been a big fan of potato salads but I happen to really like this one. The key this potato salad is the lemon. Lemon adds just the right amount of freshness to the creamy dressing. I like to use red potatoes because the pink colour is lovely in this salad and there is no peeling involved. Perfect for when I'm feeling a little lazy. :) Enjoy!

Serves: 6-8

Ingredients:
10 medium red potatoes, washed, cut into cubes
1 1/4 cup celery, chopped
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1/4 cup dill, finely chopped
1 1/4 cup mayonnaise
Juice of one lemon
Zest of one lemon, grated
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Cook potatoes in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender. This should take about 15 minutes. Drain the potatoes and allow them to cool down to room temperature.

2. For the dressing, combine the celery, herbs, mayonnaise, lemon juice, zest and balsamic vinegar. Season it with salt and pepper to taste.

3. Gently fold the dressing into the potatoes taking care not to break them.

4. Keep the potatoes refrigerated. Let them stand at room temperature for 1/2 hour before serving.

I do enjoy a good spud salad, I must try it out with cilantro...a new twist for me but I'm willing to jump in & try it.
