Greek potato salad

By Food E Fare

To make Greek potato salad, follow these steps:


  • 2 pounds (about 1 kg) potatoes (preferably waxy varieties like Yukon Gold or red potatoes)
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and halved
  • 1/2 cup cucumber, diced
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  • Wash and scrub the potatoes to remove any dirt. Leave the skins on for extra flavor and texture. Cut the potatoes into bite-sized chunks, ensuring they are roughly uniform in size for even cooking.
  • Place the potato chunks in a large pot of salted water. Bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for about 10-15 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender but still firm. Be careful not to overcook them, as you want them to hold their shape in the salad.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, prepare the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, and black pepper. Adjust the seasoning to taste and set the dressing aside.
  • Once the potatoes are cooked, drain them well and transfer them to a large mixing bowl. While they are still warm, pour the dressing over the potatoes and gently toss to coat them evenly. The warm potatoes will absorb the flavors of the dressing better.
  • Add the sliced red onion, halved Kalamata olives, diced cucumber, and cherry tomatoes to the bowl with the dressed potatoes. Gently toss everything together to combine.
  • Allow the salad to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate for at least 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to meld and develop.
  • Before serving, give the salad a final toss and sprinkle the crumbled feta cheese over the top. Garnish with fresh parsley for a pop of color and extra freshness.
  • Serve the Greek potato salad chilled or at room temperature as a delicious side dish or light meal. Enjoy!
