Red, White & Blue Potato Salad With Feta Cheese

Red, White & Blue Potato Salad With Feta Cheese
Red, White & Blue Potato Salad with Feta Cheese is colorful, but it’s got more going for it than just good looks. This potato salad sparkles with the vibrant flavors of fresh lemon, mellow olive oil, tangy Dijon mustard and the briny goodness of feta cheese. It’s quite unlike the typical potato salad that is found at picnics, barbecues and cookouts across the country. The United States been called “the melting pot” where a variety of cultures have blended over the nearly two and a half centuries of its existence. How appropriate to enjoy a potato salad that recalls those multi-cultural roots by combining elements of international cuisine – potatoes from South America, vinaigrette from the Mediterranean, feta cheese from Eastern Europe – into one harmonious convergence of flavor!
Ingredients:

3 pounds mixed petite potatoes
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 bunch green onions, sliced
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled
2 tablespoons fresh oregano, chopped

Directions:

 

Place the potatoes into a large, heavy-bottomed pan and add sufficient water to cover. Bring to a low boil and cook for 25 minutes or just until tender when pierced by a knife. Drain the potatoes well and allow to cool slightly, and then cut into wedges.

 

Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice & zest, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the potatoes, green onions and feta cheese, tossing to coat. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours or up to 8 hours. Sprinkle with fresh oregano just before serving.
