Mediterranean Style Potato Salad

This is a fresh and tasty potato salad with lots of delicious mediterranean flavors. It is great as a side dish or as a meal in itself.

I like to serve this with falafels and hummus for a middle eastern twist. It is also a great salad to take on picnics because it stays fresh very easily and can be assembled just before you are about to eat. YUM!

Instructions
  1. Boil your potatoes in their skins (mine took about 40 minutes). You want them cooked through but still firm. Drain them and hold under cold running tap water to easily remove the skins once you have boiled them. Let them cool down for a while and then slice or dice into your preferred shape. Spread them on a large platter.
  2. Spread the cucumber over the potatoes.
  3. Spread the spanish onion over the potatoes.
  4. Spread the chickpeas over the top.
  5. Sprinkle with fresh mint leaves.
  6. Sprinkle to taste with sumac, cumin seeds, black pepper and celtic sea salt.
  7. Drizzle with fresh lemon juice.
Recipe Notes

If the salad needs more moisture, you can also use a bit of the reserved chickpea brine and mix it through. This will give an oil-style feel to the dish but without the extra fat and calories 🙂

    This was great. I didn’t have the sumac, but it still taste great. The fresh squeeze lemon added just the right kick. Yummy

      The sumac bush, native to the Middle East, produces deep red berries, which are dried and ground into coarse powder. The spice was long used in Europe to add tartness to many dishes until the Romans introduced lemons to the area. While it’s less common, the berries may also be sold whole. Ground sumac is a versatile spice with a tangy lemony flavor, although more balanced and less tart than lemon juice. A small sprinkle also adds a beautiful pop of color to any dish.

      Ground sumac is widely available in Middle Eastern markets, and little by little it’s making its way into the spice aisle of grocery stores. Store ground sumac in an airtight container, away from heat and light.
