potato salad with kalamata olives and feta

Apparently I am now writing a food blog…

This is what I made today.  It is a VAST quantity, as it’s meant to be lunch for both me and my husband for an entire week (with probably some left over).

Potato Salad with Kalamata Olives and Feta

  • 10 medium potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 10 hard-boiled eggs, peeled
  • 6-8 oz kalamata olives, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 4 oz feta cheese crumbles
  • 2 14.5-oz cans chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 c extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 c red wine vinegar
  • 1 t oregano
  • salt to taste
  • crushed red pepper to tasted (I think I put in about a teaspoon)

Boil the potatoes in salted water.  Drain and cool, then dice.  Roughly chop the hard-boiled eggs.  Whisk the last 5 ingredients together, then toss everything in a very large bowl.

When I was thinking about quantities, I was thinking 1 potato + 1 egg per person per day, but it’s such a very big quantity that I may have overdone things a little…

I make a big bowl of something every Sunday that we can just scoop into containers and take with us to work each morning, and this one turned out particularly well so I thought I would share.

  4. I’m trying this without the olives and extra feta.

    Did you know that olives are potentially a cause for divorce in my family? Stan HATES them with every bone in his body. And he calls himself a Spaniard…
