Sicilian Potato Salad

Potato salad is a summertime staple, but almost everywhere you go, it's loaded with a mayo-based dressing.  I don't eat mayo, so when I run across potato salads with alternate dressings, I can't wait to give them a try. I found this Sicilian Potato Salad in the Taste of Home Summer 2018 issue, and immediately put it on the "must make" list.

I didn't make any changes to the recipe except to use grape tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes. I'll admit, I was a little skeptical of boiling the potatoes whole and then peeling them after, but it worked like a charm.  I loved all the different flavors and textures of this one.   Thank you so much to Sue F. for sharing her recipe!

How to cook Sicilian Potato Salad

  1. Place potatoes and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a Dutch oven; add water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cook, uncovered, until tender, 12-15 minutes. Drain; rinse with cold water. Pat dry.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring 1 cup water to a boil. Add beans; cook, uncovered, just until crisp-tender, 3-4 minutes. Drain; immediately drop into ice water. Drain and pat dry.
  3. Peel and cube potatoes; sprinkle with remaining salt and the pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl. Add beans, cucumbers, tomatoes, onion and 3/4 cup basil leaves. Whisk together oil, vinegar and garlic. Drizzle over vegetables; toss to coat. Sprinkle with remaining basil.

  1. My grandmother taught me the trick about peeling after boiling. Doesn't it make life much easier? I love this salad.
