Turkish Potato Salad?

Roomed withe a guy who had a girlfriend from Turkey. She stayed with us two weeks. She made this wonderful potato salad several times. I am going to make tomorrow.

Cut up potatoes and boil with skins on if you like - and any kind goes she said. Then drain and let them stay on the warm stove to "dry".

Cut up red and yellow peppers and red onion in quarter to half inch dice.

Add potatoes and veggies to a bowl big enough for what ya made. Then drizzle this with fresh lemon juice and olive oil. Toss/stir well. Set aside to let mingle.

Chop fresh cilantro and add. Salt and pepper to taste and stir again.

Taste and tweek if needed. You may want more lemon and oil. I find adding less first time around easiest because then you can get it just right after adding the cilantro, salt and pepper.

Best refrigerated for a bit to let flavors mingle. Mmmmmmm!


I know that there are many ways to make this salad in Turkey but this one is hard to beat! I am open to comparing please add your versions!

4. Adding whatever acid there is to the warm potatoes seems to be the key

I've tried waiting until the potatoes cool down and it just isn't the same.
