Prepare Potato Salad the Lebanese Way Posted by on Jul 26, 2016 in Arabic Language, Culture

Marhaba! It’s summer and as you know from my previous post on grilling chicken the Lebanese way, it’s the perfect season for barbecuing and enjoying time with family. Today, I want to teach you how to prepare potato salad the Lebanese way. I know this is a very popular side/appetizer in many countries, I firmly believe that if you have not had potato salad the Lebanese way, then you have not had potato salad. I know this sounds a bit arrogant, but the Lebanese certainly know their dishes. My family has been using this recipe for decades. So, please give it a shot and let me know how it goes. You can easily serve this easy and very tasty dish with Lebanese grilled chicken or other types of barbecue.

Salam everyone! Born as an American to two originally Arab parents, I have been raised and have spent most of my life in Beirut, Lebanon. I have lived my good times and my bad times in Beirut. I was but a young child when I had to learn to share my toys and food with others as we hid from bombs and fighting during the Lebanese Civil War. I feel my connection to Arabic as both a language and culture is severing and so it is with you, my readers and fellow Arabic lovers, and through you that I wish to reestablish this connection by creating one for you.
