  • 600 g waxy potatoes (1 1/4 pounds)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 - 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly cracked pepper
  • 2 spring onions finely sliced on an angle
  • 1/4 cup dill roughly torn or chopped


  • Scrub the skins of the potatoes clean (I like to keep the skin on but if you prefer you can peel them). Dice the potatoes evenly and place in a saucepan of salted water and bring to a boil. Cook until fork tender (the exact timing will depend on the size of the dice). 
  • While the potatoes are cooking place the lemon juice, oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl and whisk to combine. 
  • When the potatoes are cooked drain the water and place in the bowl with the dressing and toss well to combine. Leave to cool.
  • Just before serving add the spring onions and dill and toss to combine. 


This vegan potato salad is best served at room temperature so that the flavors have a chance to shine. 
If you love lemons as much as I do, lemon zest is also a great addition. Zest your lemon before using the juice in the salad.
If you don't have dill, try Italian (flat leaf) parsley or mint.
