Mediterranean Potato Salad

Over the weekend, I came across this recipe from the Summer 2010 "Edible Twin Cities" magazine.  YUM!  I haven't made it yet, but can practically taste how awesome it will be when I do.  Which will be very soon!



Serves 4


This potato salad uses olive oil instead of mayonnaise; it's good chilled or at room temperature.  Tossing the potatoes with the dressing while they're still warm helps the dressing to soak into the potatoes.


1 1/2 pounds small red potatoes

Half of a small cucumber

1/4 cup olive oil

1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 to 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground white or black pepper

1/2 cup diced red or orange bell pepper

One quarter of a small red onion, thinly sliced into quarter rings

3 or 4 pepperoncini peppers, cores and stems discarded, thinly sliced (optional, but heck yes!!!)


Cook potatoes in a pot of boiling water until tender, about 15 minutes.  Meanwhile, cut cucumber into quarters lengthwise; cutaway and discard the seedy cores, then cut into 1/4 inch slices and set aside.

When the potatoes are fork-tender, drain and refresh with cold water until they are cool enough to handle but still warm.  In a large mixing bowl, whisk oil, vinegar, oregano, salt and pepper together.  Cut warm potatoes into 3/4-inch cubes and add to the bowl with dressing, stir gently with a wooden spoon to coat.  Add prepared cucumber, bell pepper, onion and pepperoncini; stir gently to combine.
