  4. Pour the lemon vinaigrette over the potato mixture and gently toss to coat all the ingredients evenly.
  5. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.
  6. Cover the potato salad and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld together.
  7. Before serving, give the potato salad a gentle stir and garnish with additional fresh parsley if desired.


  • For a lighter option, you can use Greek yogurt in place of mayonnaise.
  • Customize the salad by adding other fresh herbs such as dill or chives.
  • Add a touch of sweetness by tossing in some halved cherry tomatoes or diced cucumber.
  • Serve the potato salad chilled as a side dish for grilled meats, burgers, or sandwiches.
