Patates Salatas? (Turkish Potato Salad)

Marsha Gardner


A Turkish girl, we befriended at the University of Alabama, made this salad along with several other dishes when her mom and aunt came from Istanbul for her graduation. I like the sour salad. As her Aunt Huleya said,

"This is a salad with potato. It's a little sour. I recommend it with yoghurt. You will like it."
