How To Make Greek Potato Salad
This super simple Greek Potato Salad recipe can be thrown together in less than 20 minutes.
- Cook the new potatoes – place the scrubbed and halved new potatoes into a saucepan of cold water with a pinch of salt. Bring the pan to the boil and then reduce the heat, simmer with the lid on for around 6-7 minutes. Then check to see if the potatoes are tender through to the middles. Continue cooking until they are – be sure to check every few minutes as you don’t want to overcook them.
- Prepare your potato salad ingredients – whilst the potatoes are cooking, prepare the rest of the salad ingredients.
- Drain and cool the potatoes – once the potatoes are cooked – drain them in a colander. Rinse the cooked potatoes under cold running water to cool them quickly, ready for use in the potato salad.
- Assemble the Greek potato salad – toss the cooked and cooled potatoes into a bowl along with the chopped cucumbers, baby plum tomatoes, black olives, sliced red onions and cubed feta cheese.
- Mix the salad dressing – add the olive oil, white wine vinegar, dried oregano and a pinch of salt and pepper to a small bowl and whisk together using a fork.
- Toss the salad with the dressing – pour the homemade vinaigrette dressing over the salad and gentle toss everything together to coat it all.
- To serve – tip the Greek potato salad onto a serving plate and scatter over the chopped herbs.
The BEST Greek Potato Salad Dressing
I dress the Greek potato salad with a freshly whisked up vinaigrette dressing using 2 tbs of olive oil and 1 tbs of white wine vinegar with a pinch of dried oregano, sea salt and black pepper. Simple and delicious.
But if you fancy changing things, you could use a tzatziki style dressing if you prefer with Greek yogurt, freshly chopped mint, garlic and lemon.

No – potato salad really doesn’t work well frozen.
It’s better to cut your potatoes into smaller bitesized pieces prior to boiling, that way they won’t go mushy and overcooked.
Our Greek potato salad will keep happily in the fridge for 48 hours. Just store in an air tight container and refrigerate as soon as possible after making.
