It is officially summer which means the opening season for picnics. Whatever the menu in any picnic, there is always a potato salad on the table. I pride myself of trying every dish that someone brings to a gathering, but the only exception is the potato salad. Don’t misunderstand me, I like potato salad like most people, but I am always nervous when I see a mayonnaise-loaded salad simmering in the summer heat.
Here is an easy refreshing potato salad that use olive oil and lemon juice for dressing which makes it a safe salad to accompany and grilling menu or picnic.
Summer Potato Salad
4 medium salad
1 medium ripe tomato, diced
1 medium sweet onion, finely chopped
1 punch Italian parsley, chopped
zest of one lemon
