Savory Spanish Potato Salad


My Savory Spanish Potato Salad is a great option for a light lunch, side dish, or picnic. What makes a Spanish Potato Salad, Spanish?

Well, it’s loaded with tasty Mediterranean ingredients for a start. Capsicum, pimento-stuffed green olives, garlic, shallots, and parsley all add wonderfully summery flavors and crunchy textures to this salad. I use red potatoes for this dish as I find them to be firmer and less soggy than other varieties. They hold well when tossed with all the other ingredients and take on a lovely coating of the vinaigrette, rather than going mushy from it.

Olive oil and red wine vinegar are all you need to dress this easy salad. Buen provecho!

Loving this whole dish, Spanish food is the way to go this summer!

So this is my first time EVER making a potato salad and i have to say its kind of difficult if you don't make everything just right your food can turn out extremely dull and plain tasting so i recommend seasoning the potatoes for a bit on the side and letting them sit before fully making the whole salad if you want a strong taste.

Dash of hotsauce and you got yourself a bomb salad with a kick.

Making some churros as dessert after eating this i'm going on a full Hispanic meals spree to try out all the difference in cultures :)

Would've given it a 5 star if my potatoes didn't turn out so bland.

Clover Housley

It's good for sure but it needs some sort of side dish too or it won't be as filling, I recommend some cheesy garlic bread or armenian bread.

I accidently put a bit too much red wine over anothe tbsp more and it turned out sooo salty and bitter!! Is there anyway to fix something like this when it happens so I don't have to throw the whole thing out?...

Elianna Gehlen

The lemon wasn't really neccessary i think it makes it too zesty.

Analia Trautz
