  • 3 large russet potatoes
  • ¾ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 cup fresh mint, cut coarsely
  • 3 tablespoon fresh parsley, cut coarsely
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • salt to taste


  • Peel and quarter potatoes. Simmer for 20-30 minutes in a large pot, until a fork easily pierces potatoes.
  • Cut potatoes into smaller pieces. Toss with the lemon juice, olive oil, herbs, and spices.
  • Chill and taste before serving, adding lemon and herbs as desired.


For the best taste, allow to chill for a few hours so the flavors marry. 
Leave out the parsley and use all mint, or leave out the mint and use all parsley.
