Potato and Lemon Salad

    45 minutes

    This potato salad tastes a little lighter and brighter than a standard potato salad because of the addition of lemon juice.

    Delicious lemony flavour - was a real hit at christmas lunch!  -  30 Dec 2008


    Interesting tangy flavour to this salad. I LIKED IT!  -  14 Nov 2010


    Wow! Deviled eggs meets potato salad. this was wonderful. I was scared after reading all the reviews about how much lemon to use, so I did it in measured steps. Tasting along the way. I definately ended up using 2 tablespoons of lemon juice instead. For those comments about the greyish color, add turmeric, i add it to all my potato salads, its hardly for the taste, since its so subtle, its more for a yellowish coloring. I did not have celery so I did not use that, but Im sure it would have been much better with it. I would have shredded some carrots for an added color but didnt have any. This dish is definately the only potato salad dish I will ever make, to accomodate those that would not prefer eggs in this salad, the only thing I would do is serve it with and without. Also there is no reason to add veg. oil or olive oil, you dont want that oily flavor, I just added 1 tbl of butter for a little of that flavor. I added 1 tbl of paprika for a kick as well as a bit of lemon zest. It was divine!!  -  07 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
