One can never go wrong with potato dishes, it is a root which is enjoyed by practically all adults and kids. It is versatile and even the simplest dish tastes awesome. Make it without spices and yet you will enjoy it. So , how about making a salad with it. I have a couple of potato salads on my list , but since I chose to cook Greek Cuisine for the last week of BM #76,I decided to make a Greek Potato Salad.

I had already made Briam, a Greek vegetable dish, but was not happy with the pictures, so had to re do a Greek dish. I had absolutely nothing in my frig, and potato is something which is always there, so I picked this simple salad, which hubby and I enjoyed with our dinner. Hubby has told me to make just the salad, and no other dish for next time.The salad can be served either warm or cold, but since it is peak summer I served it cold.

Coming to the recipe

3 large potatoes
1/3 cup olive oil
