Lemon Vinaigrette Potato Salad



     There is only one thing in life that I can't eat and it is mayonnaise. There is something
     about it, that just doesn't sit well with me and it's been this way since I was a little girl.
     I've tried it over the years with hopes that my palette has changed and it has never ever
     worked out, haha. I'd go to barbecues and see potato salad and would dream about
     consuming it. Basically everything that has mayo in it. I make my own versions and try
     to come up with other alternatives. Here is a healthy potato salad that is full of flavor.
       
                                                   Lemon Vinaigrette Potato Salad

                                                  3 to 4 pounds red potatoes, diced
                                                  2 lemons, juiced
                                                  1/2 cup olive oil
                                                  1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
                                                  2 tablespoons fresh parsley or dill
                                                  3 ounces of feta cheese, optional
                                                  1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
                                                  1 onion, chopped
                                                  salt and pepper

      1) Boil potatoes and onion for 20 minutes or until tender.Drain potatoes and place in a
      bowl. Mix lemon, oil, vinegar, parsley, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Pour over
      potatoes and mix. Add feta.

  2. Will have to try this. We just made potato salad yesterday. I am not a huge Mayo fan either, but don't mind it too much if mixed with other flavors.

  4. Yum! This sounds soooo good. I am not a super fan of Mayo. It doesn't make me ill, but whenever we make potato salad or tuna, we always use as little as possible. I love that yellow fork too :) Happy belated 4th!

  5. You should try Vegenaise!!! It's so so good. It's way better than mayo. It's a vegan alternative, might not make you sick?
