Yumm… potato salad. That really reminds me of summer. No side dish is better with barbecue than potato salad, and no food is more summer-like than barbecue (well, maybe except for ice cream & berry smoothies). This lovely potato salad is very easy and very delicious. Made with greek yoghurt (youghut natural will work just fine).
Last Friday I had a little birthday party with my girlfriends from my class (My birthday was on the 9th of April, but I hadn’t celebrated it yet). It was very nice. We made our own barbecue with skewers. I had cute out a lot of meat and vegetables and then, you could design your meal. It was great. I made some nice sign for the food, which said, what there was in the bowl (chicken and pork can be quite hard to tell apart when it is uncooked). Here is a picture of the signs:
|“Svinekotelet” means a kind of pork|
I would like to add the signs as a pdf so you could print it, but I don’t know how to add a pdf file :-(
The “DIY-skewers-with-vegetables-and-meat” became a hit. And of course everybody liked the food. But heres a tip, if you are thinking about doing the same:
Let your guests prepare their skewers with meat and vegetables 10 minutes before you eat. They need some time on the barbecue before they’re done. And you won’t like your guests to starve.
What you need
Side dish for 12 persons (who don’t eat that much, if there are men you might have to make some more)
2 cups plain low-fat greek yoghurt (or just plain yoghurt)
A lot of herbs (min. 2 handfuls. Mix all of your favorite herbs – the more, the better)
About 2 tbsp. lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste
1300 g. (46 oz.) baby potatoes
How to do
Boil the potatoes. They don’t have to be “well done” it’s good when they are just tender – not too much.
Mix the yoghurt, chopped herbs, lemon juice, salt and peber. Add the potatoes and mix well. Garnish with some herbs – e.g. the flowers from the parsley.
Serve cold with grilled meat and a lovely salad. Easy peasy summer dinner.
