Potato Salad with Tarama Mayonnaise

Servings: 4-5
Preparation time: 60 minutes
Active time: 20 mintues
Total time: 80 minutes

1 kg boiling potatoes,
60ml olive oil
1 tbsp cod/carp roe
juice from 1 lemon
1 cup black or green olives
½ onion
2-3 tbsp dill (optional)


1. Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender, but not very soft. Drain and put aside to cool.

2. Using a hand mixer beat the roe alternating the olive oil and lemon juice until you get a smooth mayonnaise–like cream.

3. In a deep salad bowl carefully combine the potatoes, chopped olives, onion, dill and the “mayonnaise”. The best tool to use for this task are your (clean) hands.

4. Put the potato salad in the fridge for at least an hour up to a day to chill.
