My Mother's Potato & Tomato Salad
We all have those dishes that when you take a bite it immediately reminds you of home. Some we remember longingly and some less.
When Pesach approaches it is potato festival in my parent’s home. All the Chametz is out and in come the potatoes – in Pesach they are in their fullest glory!
I actually didn’t like this recipe as child, probably because of all the parsley and garlic.
But Today, oh today there is no chance of me arriving in my parent’s house during Pesach without a big freshly seasoned bowl of this wonderful salad waiting with my name on it.
So here is my mother’s potato & tomato most kosher for Passover and most delicious salad recipe.
5 medium sized potatoes
4 medium sized tomatoes
1/2 cup of fresh chopped parsley
4 green onions
Freshly squeezed lemon juice from 2 medium lemons
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 tbs salt
2 Garlic cloves
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- Boil and cook the potatoes until softened
- Peel and dice into medium sized cubes
- Dice the tomatoes into same sized cubes
- Chop the parsley thinly together with the onion and garlic
- Season with olive oil, salt & pepper
- Mix together
- Can be kept in the fridge for a few days
If you feel like trying an easy to make authentic recipe this is just the one for you. It is perfect for taking with you when going out picnicking.
Enjoy and have a happy and kosher Pesach!
