Healthy Garlic-Olive oil Potato Salad (vegetarian, vegan).

Healthy Garlic Olive oil Potato salad.

Flavors for summer days and the outdoors. Vegetarian, vegan.

I’m taking inspiration from Italian flavors using Olive oil, Garlic combination to introduce my terrible four to Summer salads. You can even toss a few Pickled Garlic to add a more subtle tang to the salad.

Everyone has their own favorite Potato salad that they love and stick to but if you are thinking of trying something new then I hope you try making this version of the salad.

You’ll be surprised how simple combinations can work together.

Your everyday, ordinary Potatoes gets jazzed up with just three ingredients that are staples in any home kitchen aiming to feed their family healthy food.

What main dishes can I serve with this Garlic-Olive oil Potato Salad?

Basically any meat, poultry and fish dishes, grilled or baked will complement the simple salad. if you prefer to keep the menu vegetarian then grill a few vegetables to accompany this side-dish.  Avoid rice as you already have the starch from the Potatoes.

3 things to keep in mind when Boiling Potatoes.

1/ If you have a variety of potatoes to choose from, choose potatoes that can handle the boiling temperature and still keep its shape.

2/ Although it will take 15-25 minutes for the whole Potato to become tender make sure to check if it is done after 10 minutes as smaller ones can cook faster than larger ones.

3/ Do not add the Potatoes to boiling water but place them in cold water and let them cook as the temperature rises.
