Potato salad with cumin and cilantro

« My Moroccan uncle showed me this recipe and I must admit that I love these potatoes bathed in cumin oil lightly flavored with lemon. It can be served warm or cold. I prefer the cold version, which is a really delicious addition to any cold buffet or picnic. »

Serves 4


  • Peel and roughly chop the garlic cloves
  • Squeeze the lemon to extract all the juice
  • Remove the stalk from the cilantro and chop finely
  • Peel the potatoes and cut them into large pieces of the same size
  • Bring a large saucepan of water to boil on high heat
  • Add the pieces of potato and the garlic
  • Let it cook for 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are cooked but still firm.
  • Drain the potatoes and put them straight into a large pan on medium heat
  • Pour in the olive oil, lemon juice, cumin and chopped cilantro and stir well
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Leave on the heat for 2 minutes.

Serve warm or cold.


I strongly recommend that you leave these potatoes in their dressing in the refrigerator overnight and serve them the next day at a picnic or cold buffet to accompany some barbecued merguez sausages. I promise you it will be delicious.

I also have a recipe for small, new potatoes, oven-cooked in their jackets with cumin, which I am planning to publish here in the near future.

You can also add a small dab of anchovy paste to liven it up a bit.
