warm potato salad with lemon and fresh herbs

I'm one of those strange birds that prefers their potato salad warm. I love to dig in just after I'm done mixing it up instead of waiting and eating it cold from the fridge. My dad makes the greatest potato salad on the planet and I always eat it warm too. My dad's salad is jam packed with bacon, olives, eggs...it's incredible!

I made this lemon and herb potato salad for Easter brunch. I thought the lemon and fresh herbs made it a nice choice. It also has a touch of balsamic. It may not look like much in these photos but it actually was quite scrumptious!

warm potato salad with lemon and fresh herbs
recipe adapted from Dragon's Kitchen

serves 6-8

Print recipe

10 medium red potatoes, cut into cubes
1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
1/2 cup chives, finely chopped
1 1/4 cup mayo
juice from 1 lemon
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
salt and cracked pepper

Cook potatoes in a large pot of salted water until tender. Drain and allow to cool to room temperature.

In a large bowl combine the herbs, mayo, lemon juice, zest and balsamic. Salt and pepper to taste.

Fold potatoes into the herb mayo mixture. I like to break my potatoes up a bit as I stir.

You can serve this immediately or refrigerate and then serve. It's up to you.


Hope you are having a lovely day! ;)

This does sound good! I'm with you, I much prefer my potato salad warm. I also prefer mine to have an oil and vinegar base, so I'm doubly weird.

I'm with you on the warm potato salad. My favorite is a non-mayo dressing with roasted garlic, olive oil, and chives. It's mind-blowing.

This looks pretty delish as well!

It never occured to me to have this hot (how unimaginative is that - doh!) I am going to try this with Gammon and parsley sauce - if my kitchen ever gets finished.

I love that it uses the fresh herbs of the season. I love warm potato salad! (All right, I also love it cold). It comforts and the lemon is a perfect way to bring out the flavor.

I've never had it warm before, but I've also never had it with bacon either. I bet it's amazing.
