It’s summer time, here in the South that means very high temperatures and humidity levels. It also means our family is busy with swim team practices and meets. During the week we pack dinner to eat at swim meets Mondays and Thursdays. Tuesday and Wednesdays we don’t get home from practice until 6 so dinner has to be quick and easy or made ahead.
That’s where this potato salad comes in handy. I can make it in the morning, because really that’s the best time of day to boil potatoes, and put it in the fridge for dinner later. We can pack it for a swim meet or have it at home with an entree.
This isn’t your typical mayonnaise laden potato salad. It feels lighter with a fresh vinaigrette. Herbs give it that fresh pop of flavor and color. Your could switch out with other herbs if your tastes are different. We happen to have lots of parsley and dill which go well with the capers.
