Potato Salad

Chilean Style Potato Salad.

For 4 portions.


4 medium potatoes
1/4 onion
1/2 cup of fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/4 of a small lemon
mayonnaise to taste
salt to taste


Wash the potatoes and without peeling them set them in a pot with enough water to cover them with a little of salt.
When the water starts boiling, leave it 20 to 30 minutes aprox to cook them until they are soft.
After they are ready, remove the potatoes and let them cool.
Peel the potatoes once they are cool enough to handle. Cut them in squares.
Peel and chop the onion in small squares.
Put the onion in warm water with a little salt for 15 minutes.
Then drain the onion and squash it a little under warm water.
Tear off the leaves of the cilantro and cut them just a little.
Mix onion, cilantro, olive oil, lemon juice, mayonnaise and salt to the potatoes.

With a knife you can verify when the potatoes are cooked. If the knife passes through easily when you stick your knife in, it is cooked.
You can also eat this potato salad without peeling the potatoes. It is just a matter of taste.
You can add cooked carrot cut in little squares.
