My Portuguese Potatoe Salad

Hi everyone. As I promised in my last post about Portuguese Fish "Sargos", here´s the recipe of the salad I made to garnish my dish:

Salad Ingredients:

~ 5 Small potatoes
~ 1 Green/Red big pepper
~ 2 Medium size tomatoes
~ 1 Small onion

Seasoning Sauce:

~ 3 Tsp olive oil
~ 1 Tsp vinegar
~ Salt (at taste)
~ Dry oregano to sprinkle


Boil the potatoes in salted water and let them cool.
Grill half of the pepper (in your stove or grill) and use the other half raw. Sometimes I use both green and red sweet peppers in this salad.
Cut potatoes in half, and all the other vegetables in very small pieces, specially onion, and mix them in a salad bowl.
Season with the sauce, mix well, and it´s ready to serve. This salad is very good in the summer to garnish both grilled and fried fish dishes. I like this salad cold, so I put it in the fridge for half an hour before serving.
This recipe serves 3.
Bom Apetite!

This sounds delicious - I love potato salad but tend to use high fat mayonnaise as a dressing and this sounds like a great alternative.

Hi Rachel. Tanks for your visit.
This salad is really great. I also do mayonnaise salads, which I will post later, but a vinagrette sauce, as we call it, is much healthier. The oregano is the perfect match for veg salads. I can´t live without it :)
See you soon.
