potato salad recipe – simple and easy salad with potatoes and mixed herbs.
this is a very simple potato salad that i make at times. quick to assemble, if you already have some boiled potatoes handy. there is no dressing as such in the recipe and you just need to mix and toss everything. this salad can also be served as a starter snack. also goes well with a side of soup and some breads.
for the herbs you can use your favorite herbs or your choice of fresh herbs. i have used a mix of basil, parsley and celery. if you live in parts of india, where you do not get fresh herbs like basil or parsley. then use indian herbs like coriander leaves and fresh mint leaves in the salad.
always use fresh herbs. also rinse the herbs very well and you can use a salad spinner to dry them or just pat them dry with a kitchen towel.
potato being a favorite of adults and kids alike, this salad is liked by everyone.
