mmmmm: lemon basil potato salad


i am not a mayonnaise fan...never have been. the only time i like it is when it's mixed with pesto sauce. so, when i saw this fabulous recipe for a no-mayo potato salad, i was all over it. this is delicious. it's cool and refreshing on a hot summer day. enjoy!

lemon-basil potato salad

10 medium potatoes

1/2 large red onion, chopped

fresh basil, stems removed, chopped

salt and pepper


dressing:

4-5 cloves of minced garlic

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

juice of two lemons (or about 1/4 cup lemon juice)

2/3 cup olive oil


wash the potatoes. leave the skins on and slice about 1/4 inch think. boil the sliced potatoes in salted water approximately 12 minutes. drain and let cool. mix garlic, mustard and lemon juice in a large bowl. whisk in the olive oil. season with salt and pepper. add potatoes, basil and onion and mix well. enjoy!
