Magazine Monday #46: Lemony Potato Salad

I love potato salad - it's one of my summertime favourites. Why I only eat it in the summer is a very good question indeed. Perhaps I need to change that.

Anyway, this recipe from Gourmet's July 2009 issue caught my eye because of it's simplicity and the fact that it uses lemon. I also love lemon!

The recipe is here.

Because I have a ton of dill growing in my garden, I added about 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill - and this salad was superb. I served it for a family BBQ and it was a huge hit. Definitely a keeper recipe from Gourmet!

Joining me in trying out magazine recipes this week are:

Paninigirl made a luscious Berry Tart with Marscapone Cream from an old issue of Gourmet.

Andreas of Delta Kitchen made Chili Pasta from a German magazine called Lecker.

Bobbi of Bobbi's Art made a beautiful watermelon & cuke salad from the most recent issue of Gourmet.

How interesting, a potato salad without pickles. It is hard for me to imagine!!

Lovely round up. I look forward to these now. Your choice sounds excellent. Never thought of lemon for potato salad. Must add a nice fresh taste.

I wonder the same thing about potato salad...I don't tend to eat it except in summer monthys. Love it though. You really like lemon and I think that's a great addition to this salad.

That looks very nice. A perfect side to have along with some BBQed meats.

Love the post and the photo! I have, discussions about leaving the skin on the potato in the salad. OF COURSE you should leave the skin on, all the additional taste, texture and color as well as the vitamins are a must add!

Nice post, thanks for the always excellent blog

The tater salad sounds so good with lemon and dill! It breathes new life into a classic.

Yes why is it that we only eat mayo salads in the summer! This sounds very refreshing and good, I love lemon to. I bet it brightened up the flavor !

I love potato salad, but it never occurs to me to make it for some reason. I'm always happy to find it at picnics!
