Arabic Potato Salad

Total Time
Yields 6-8 servings

Super simple Arabic Potato Salad only has a few ingredients - potatoes, lemon, oil, garlic, and parsley – but is full of flavor and because there is no mayonnaise, it’s great for a picnic!


  • 1.5 lbs Russett potatoes (this was 6 medium potatoes for me)
  • juice of a lemon (1/4 - 1/2 cup)
  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Scrub, peel, and chop your potatoes into bite size pieces. Add to a large pot of well salted water and boil until fork tender.
  2. Drain potatoes and return to pot.
  3. Add in lemon juice, olive oil, minced garlic, and chopped parsley. Toss then season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Let sit, covered, in the fridge for a few hours for flavors to really come together.
  5. Garnish with more chopped parsley and serve.
