Lemon Piccata Potato Salad
Summer is here!
Maybe not officially, but the sun is out, and I am here and ready for it.
This Lemon Piccata potato salad is so bright, it brings fresh summer vibes even during the height of football season. This tasty side dish is perfect for all of your game day parties.
The first time I made this recipe was during the winter months, actually. I was craving potatoes - that's normal - and a classic summertime salad was calling my name. I have always loved the flavors of piccata - the bright lemon and salty, briny capers.
I have had a Lemon Piccata potato salad recipe on my list for a while, and after making it a few times, I am excited to share with you all.
Topped with lemon zest and capers, this is a side dish with layers of flavor. Mild enough to fit right in on the potluck table, and just unique enough to be different from its classic pickle potato salad cousins.
and if it is too mild for you? Add hot sauce like my husband does.
Why this is the best potluck salad recipe
Lemon Piccata potato salad is perfect for potlucks and BBQ.
For a dish to be included in the Best Potluck Recipe category, it needs to meet several requirements. This dish should be:
- crowd pleasing, good flavors
- easily transportable
- a recipe to feed many
- low maintenance / easy to serve
- egg and dairy free, mayo free
We have enjoyed egg free potato salad for years. Mayo free potato salad. Vegan potato salad. I mean, it shouldn't sit out all day long under the hot sunshine, but egg free, dairy free and mayo free tells me it doesn't have the spoil potential of the traditional mayo versions.
I have only shared this potato salad at one potluck so far, but I left the party with an empty bowl and two people wanting the recipe. It may be an early declaration, but that qualifies as Best Potluck Recipe in my book.
