  • Naxos Potato Salad
  • 2 POUNDS / 1 kilo Naxos potatoes peeled
  • 3 firm ripe tomatoes, cored and cut into 3-cm (1 1/8-inch) pieces

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil or more to taste
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar or to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. 1. Place the potatoes in a large pot of cold water and bring to a boil. Salt generously. Reduce heat to medium and simmer the potatoes until they are fork tender. Drain and rinse immediately under cold water. Cut the potatoes into 3-cm (1 1/8-inch) rounds and place in a large salad bowl. Add the tomatoes and onions.
  2. 2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and oregano. Reserve a few tablespoons of the dressing, pour the rest over the potato salad and toss gently to combine.
