My very simple potato salad

There are so many potato dishes out there, that I don’t think anyone can accurately estimate their number. Despite this fact, until about two years ago, for me potatoes meant french fries and mash potatoes. I liked french fries – obviously – but I didn’t really enjoy mashed potatoes; up to this point I still don’t like it very much.

But since my passion for food emerged, I started exploring more, sometimes with new ingredients and sometimes with old ingredients, meaning things I already knew and used to eat, not ingredients that are old, as in past expiration date old.

At this point, I am proud to say I haven’t eaten one single french fry this year, so if there’s any award for this please let me know to claim my prize! Haha, I wish!

Let me tell you about this potato salad. It’s very easy to make and you can boil the potatoes the night before, because they need to be chilled anyway before serving.

I don’t really know why, but in my country this salad is known as “oriental salad”, although potatoes have nothing to do with the Orient. Maybe it’s because of the olives and olive oil in it, but I don’t really know for sure.

So, before I finish, I’d like to ask you something: how fast is this website loading in your country? I’d like to know this in order to improve the loading time, but some answers from you would help me make an idea. No need to be super precise, unless you’re from Switzerland, in which case I have some serious expectations from you!

  1. Boil the potatoes for 20-25 minutes, until they are cooked, and let them cool down. This step can be done even a day before from the preparation of the salad.
  2. Peel the boiled potatoes and cut them into medium cubes.
  3. Cut the eggs in small pieces and add over the potatoes. Slice the onion and the cucumbers and add to the salad.
  4. Drizzle some olive oil, add salt - to taste and then add the olives.
  5. It's best served cold! Enjoy!
