Print Fried potato salad

An unusual, zesty fried potato side dish. This vegetarian salad is very easy to make. It's a light lunch on it's own, if you add a few quartered boiled eggs. It's also a good accompaniment to fish or grilled meat.


  • 2 tbsp butter
  • Slug of olive oil
  • 600-800g potatoes, boiled & thickly sliced (would work with new or old)
  • 2 handfuls flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 3 tbsp capers, rinsed & finely chopped
  • 100-200g pitted green olives, chopped
  • Zest of 2 lemons


  1. Combine the butter and olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the potatoes and fry until crisp and golden. When ready to serve, season and add parsley, capers, olives and lemon zest.
