    Mirj's Note:

    A great tasting potato salad with no mayonnaise. Very Greek, makes you want to break plates and drink ouzo.

    1. 1
      Cut any large potatoes in half to speed up the cooking.
    2. 2
      Put the potatoes in a large saucepan, completely cover with water and add salt.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil.
    4. 4
      Cover and simmer over medium-low heat until a knife can pierce the center of the largest potato easily and the potato falls from the knife when lifted, about 25 minutes.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile prepare the dressing: In a small bowl whisk 2 tablespoons lemon juice with a pinch of salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.
    6. 6
      Add 3 tablespoons olive oil and whisk again.
    7. 7
      Drain the potatoes in a colander, rinse them briefly and leave just until cool enough to handle.
    8. 8
      Peel them if you like, and cut them into 1 inch cubes.
    9. 9
      Put them in a large bowl and add the onions, 3 tablespoons dressing and a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
    10. 10
      With a rubber spatula, fold together gently but thoroughly.
    11. 11
      Let potatoes cool to room temperature.
    12. 12
      Dice the tomatoes to add them to the salad, or cut them in thick wedges to use as garnish.
    13. 13
      Whisk the remaining dressing, pour it over the potatoes and fold it together.
    14. 14
      Add the parsley, capers, half the olives and the diced tomatoes to the potatoes and fold together lightly.
    15. 15
      Taste, adjust seasoning, and add more lemon juice and olive oil if needed.
    16. 16
      Garnish with the remaining olives and with the tomatoes, if you've cut them in wedges.
    17. 17
      Serve at room temperature.

      As I am not a big fan of mayo, I was intrigued by this recipe, and we had fun making it with the rest of our homegrown red potatoes! Thank you!

      Mirj, this was great. I love mayoless potato salads! I used the tomatoes, cut them into chunks and mixed them through, also used half a cucumber cut into chunks. I didn't peel my potatoes as we love the skins on in salads. Also added kalamata olives and capers from the options you mentioned.

      Good and easy. I too am always looking for alternative potatoe salad recipes. This one is easy to put together, inexpensive to make and is something new and different for a BBQ or pot luck. I used about 1.5lb red potatoes and .5lb blue potatoes to give it some fun color.
