This Potato salad is one of my favourites, maybe because of the tahini paste used here, which I just LOVE. I think I learnt this recipe from my aunt’s daughter more than 20 years ago, and since then, it’s one of the always there-in-fridge salad back home.


  • 3 large Potatoes, largely diced, boiled till tender (reserve boiling liquid)

  • 3 lemons juice

  • 2/3 cup Tahini Paste

  • 1 tbsp White vinegar

  • 1 cup Parsley, finely chopped

  • ¼ tsp Black pepper+ ¼ tsp White Pepper

  • Salt to season

  • Summac or paprika to garnish (Optional)


  • 1.

    Mash potatoes while hot and add Tahini+ lemon juice+ vinegar+ peppers+ salt. Mix well

  • 2.

    Add ¼ - ½ cup of reserved boiling liquid (if you forgot and threw it, no problem, just add water). Mix well. The quantity added is to get a thick spreadable consistency. Add more lemon juice and salt to taste.

  • 3.

    Let cool then add parsley and mix. Arrange in serving plate. Garnish with some parsley and summac or paprika. Serve with pita bread (fresh or toasted) or can be served with grills or any way you like.
