Italian Potato Salad

Food Safety Tip

With white potatoes it is important to keep them in the dark.

Always discard any that have been out and exposed to daylight for extended periods to avoid unnecessary exposure to toxins.

Buy fresh ones from a reputable vendor, too.

My Italian Potato Salad Recipe

Whole potatoes ready to peel


  • 6 medium white potatoes
  • 3 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp dried oregano (consider organic)

This dish is featured in my elegant printable recipe card collection.


Prepare your potatoes by washing and scrubbing them. Inspect them and make sure there is no green coloring. Discard any green ones or remove any green areas. Read why here.

Place them in a medium sized pot and fill until water just covers the potatoes. Turn the heat up and bring the water to a boil. When it is boiling, add the salt.

Allow the potatoes to boil for approximately 15 to 30 minutes depending on their size, or until a fork pushes through them easily.

When they are soft, drain the water and rinse with cold water to help cool them down faster. When they are cool to the touch, peel and dice them and place into your serving bowl.

Add the remaining ingredients, toss, chill for 2 hours minimum or overnight so that the flavors can meld, and then serve!

This side dish would go well with pork chops or Italian sausage, or just at your next cookout, whether all Italian or not.

A presto!
