Lebanese Potato Salad

Great Lebanese Potato Salad dish dressed with a tangy lemon vinaigrette and fresh mint

Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds russet potatoes (about 3 medium)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
Preparation:
  • Place potatoes in a large saucepan or Dutch oven and cover with lightly salted water. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Transfer to a cutting board. Let cool for 20 minutes. Cut the cooled potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Whisk lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the potatoes and toss to coat.
  • Just before serving, add scallions and mint to the salad and toss gently.
