This is traditional Turkish potato salad , it is very easy, delicious and healthy. This is a different take on the usual potato salad and you can change the ingredients to your liking. Potato salad is a wonderful side dish with meat, chicken or fish. I like to prepare this without salt and put it in the fridge so that it is ready to eat the next day (I add salt and pepper when I want to eat it so that it doesn’t get too soggy). Super quick and yummy. Enjoy it!
