Sicilian Lemon Herb Potato Salad

LemonPotatolg

Potato salad in my family was made with either lemon juice or vinegar and olive oil.  This easy recipe for lemon-herb potato salad is my favorite.  It’s simply dressed with olive oil and lemon juice and seasoned with parsley and scallions.  Serve with grilled chicken or beef.
