Potato salads are a classic summer dish! They are pretty simple containing cooked and cooled potato chunks with other ingredients tossed in a dressing. You can make potato salads ahead of time and store them in the fridge, in fact they get even better the next day as the flavours have a chance to mingle! Potato salads are a great make ahead side for any meal and they travel well making them a good choice for picnics, potlucks, tailgating, etc. This potato salad is made with Mediterranean inspired ingredients including olives, sun-dried tomatoes, feta, onions and plenty of fresh herbs! The dressing is light and creamy with Greek yogurt and fresh lemon juice! This potato salad is just packed with flavour and it’s one of my go-to summer sides!
