Italian Potato Salad

(9 Votes)
Italian Potato Salad
20 Min

No more boring potato salad if we give it a taste of Italy! Our Italian Potato Salad is hearty enough to be a meal in itself, or the perfect deli salad go-along to any of our favorites.

What You'll Need:
  • 6 Idaho potatoes, scrubbed and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 pound hot Italian turkey sausage, cooked and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped roasted red pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup pitted Italian black or kalamata olives
  • 1/2 (10-ounce) bag fresh spinach
What To Do:
  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook potatoes 8 to 10 minutes, or until fork-tender. Drain, place in a large bowl, and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

  3. Add remaining ingredients to potatoes, pour dressing over mixture, and stir gently until evenly coated. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • If spicy isn't your thing, feel free to use sweet Italian turkey sausage instead of the hot sausage.
  • Potato salad is one of our favorite go-alongs, and we've got some tasty variations for you to try: We think our German Potato Salad and our Presto Potato Salad are simply awesome!

This Sounds So Good

Ditto, Kamicat - where is the ultimate potato salad recipe??? sorry - can't rate something that isn't there!

This is a must try, even though NOT the Christmas Eve Italian VERSION.

Where is the recipe for the Ultimate Potato Salad??? My email says that is the lead recipe but the only potato salad there is this italian one and I sure wouldn't call this Ultimate.

Lol, you took the words right out of my mouth!

Oh - My - Goodness! this is soooo delicious! made it for tonight's dinner but had to sample some for lunch...fabulous! Another hit, Mr. food! Thanks so much!

Very good salad but I used Italian pork veal sausage with fenel and it was great. Italians don't make turkey sausage. Our sausage is robust and full flavor. How good would salsa be without the use of tomatoes.

Looks and Sounds so good! Going to make it this weekend...thanks Mr. Food :)

OK so i decided to make this recipe and use some of hot Italian Sausage from Bari Beef and i made this recipe. Wow it taste so good I had to add this to our website as well as a Spicy Italian Sausage version. It is going to go really well with the Italian Beef sandwiches we are making for Memorial weekend! Another great recipe! Thanks Mr. Food!
