This potato salad is an Italian style potato salad. It is not heavy at all, and has no mayonnaise. BHG calculated the recipe at six servings with 186 calories per serving, which is not too shabby when talking potato salad.
One reason I was drawn to this potato salad is that I had all the ingredients on hand, and most of it was fresh from my own garden. I was excited to try it out using all that delicious fresh garden produce! I used my own potatoes, green beans, garlic, tomatoes and basil! Nice.
The dressing consists of grated lemon peel, lemon juice, the olive oil, capers, garlic, anchovy paste and pepper. Shake it up or mix it and you have your dressing. The salad itself is potatoes, boiled, hard boiled eggs, green beans cooked, and tomatoes, olives and fresh basil! Mix it all together, let it set for a bit, and enjoy!
The recipe made enough for Chris and I to have dinner, plus about three servings of leftovers later in the week. It kept well in the fridge and didn’t get mushy.
