Irish Potato salad recipe

We sometimes forget our roots – potato salad, beetroot, a spring onion on a plate with half a boiled egg was a summer tea for an Irish child! This is an updated potato salad but it is sure to bring back memories.

Serves 4 (divides in half or doubles easily)


4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into slices
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
10 olives, pitted and halved
1 tablespoon of capers (optional)
2 cups of rocket leaves
1 shallot, peeled and minced
Salt and Pepper
Virgin olive oil



1. Boil the potatoes until they are tender.
2. Put them in a bowl and add the olives and capers.
3. In a bowl, mix the lemon juice, zest, shallot, salt and pepper. Whisk in the olive oil with a fork.
4. Pour over the potatoes and mix with clean hands. Add the rocket leaves and mix gently.

How easy is that!
