Greek Potato Salad


This Greek Potato Salad is a delicious flavor combination which takes its inspiration from Greece. The quintessential Greek salad ingredients are all present in this potato salad: olives, feta cheese, cherry tomatoes and oregano. It’s lighter than traditional potato salads too because there is no mayo in the dressing.

It’s super simple to make too. Start by cooking potatoes in boiling water. While the potatoes cool on a baking sheet, make a dressing by combining oil, vinegar, shallot, mustard, pepper and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the potatoes, tomatoes, feta, olives and oregano to the bowl with the dressing and mix well to coat. Enjoy!

To make my version of Greek Potato Salad, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Greek Potato Salad


Boil the potatoes


In a large saucepan, bring 1-2 inches of water to a boil and place a steamer basket on the saucepan. Place 2½ pounds of potatoes in the steamer basket and cook for 12-15 minutes until they are tender, but still firm.


Leave potatoes to cool


Spread the cooked potatoes in a layer on a rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon of salt and leave to cool for 15 minutes.


Make dressing


Place ¼ cup of extra-virgin olive oil, 3 tablespoons of white-wine vinegar, ¼ cup of finely chopped red onion, 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard, ½ a teaspoon of ground pepper and the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt in a large bowl and whisk until combined.


Assemble the salad


Add the cooked potatoes to the bowl with the dressing along with 1 cup of halved cherry tomatoes, ⅓ cup of crumbled feta cheese, ¼ cup of quartered Kalamata olives and 2 tablespoons of chopped fresh oregano. Stir well to ensure all the ingredients are evenly coated.



Serve immediately at room temperature or refrigerate if you prefer a colder salad.

This looks delicious! I can't wait to make it. It's very similar to a recipe I misplaced, but had made many years ago for my large Greek family gatherings - and it was always a hit. From what I recall, the only difference was the type of vinegar - my recipe called for red wine vinegar instead of white. White probably makes a prettier presentation. The reviewer who commented that this is "not really Greek" has no idea what they're talking about. So glad to have found your recipe. Thank you!

I didn't add as much vinegar as stated cause it's very strong instead I went with just 2 tablespoons instead of 3.

Dana Hare

Didn't add the oregano cause that usually overpowers everything in my opinion.
