Summer is a time for fresh ingredients and flavors. When you’re grilling something delicious, you need a few simple side dishes as well. This easy potato salad takes less than 30 minutes to make, with just six ingredients.
We barbecue with our neighbors at least once a week all summer. It’s one of our favorite traditions! Now that the kids are older, they’ve been helping with food prep like chopping vegetables and putting together simple recipes. This is one of those recipes. I help with draining the boiling water once the potatoes are done cooking, but they know how to chop the onion and make the dressing.
This dish tastes great warm, but if you let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving, the potatoes will marinate in the vinaigrette dressing and taste just amazing!
Oil & Vinegar Potato Salad
1 1/2 lbs. yellow or Yukon Gold potatoes
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp sugar
Boil the potatoes in salted water until just tender, 20-25 minutes depending on size. If the potatoes are varied sizes, cut them to be more uniform so they will cook at the same time.
In a bowl, combine red onion, oil, vinegar, sugar and parsley. Add potatoes and toss to coat.
Serve warm or chill for several hours before serving.
This Oil & Vinegar Potato Salad is also easy to scale up if you are serving a crowd. Just double the recipe. It’s always scarfed up at our house.
Having some simple go-to recipes during the busy summer months makes getting dinner on the table so much easier. If you’re looking for more easy recipes, take a look at my Recipe Index.
