This is my mother’s recipe, she always makes it if we had a barbeque. All my relatives have a different version of Patates Salata, some add lemon juice instead of vinegar. Others relatives add beetroot/beet or fresh parsley or fresh mint or onions. This is the way I like it, quick, simple and mums recipe.
- Cut potatoes into 1 inch/2.5 cms cubes and boil for 20-15 minutes, or until tender. Drain potatoes then place in serving bowl.
- Add olive oil, white vinegar, dried mint, salt and black pepper, to the potatoes, mix well.
- Allow potatoes to cool down, then you could serve or you can cover and refrigerate up to an hour before serving.
This is the first time I have used dried mint and it worked fine, though I would imagine if you had fresh mint on hand that would work too. I used white balamic vinegar instead of the plain white. I trebled the recipe to make it more of a family sized serving. Very tasty and quick and easy to make. My potatoes didn't take as long to cook as the recipe suggested. I would definitely make this recipe again. Made for Aussie Kiwi Swap Dec 2010
Great light and tasty flavours, such a quick and easy salad to put together. The mint gives the potato a really fresh taste ( I used some fresh chopped mint as well). A perfect compliment to our dinner on this hot summers might! I think this recipe would be just as nice served warm. Thanks floWer for another great salad recipe for summer.
I thought this was very nice. So simple yet very flavourful. I used crushed red peppercorns in place of the black pepper. I served it at room temperature since it's a little cool today. I will try it 'hot' as a side to a meat entree one day soon. Thanks Flower for a lovely addition to my salad collection. Made for the Auzzie/NZ Recipe Swap #33
