Lemon Greek Potatoes

Greek/Mediterranean cuisine is my favorite! It’s fresh and filling. When I used to travel for work, I discovered a Mediterranean restaurant in a small town. This was the first time I was exposed to lemon potatoes. I was, for some crazy reason, skeptical about lemon soaked potatoes. So very tasty. Of course I had to try to replicate the potatoes at home. The lemon potato I tired was peeled and has a yellow tint to it. In my recipe, I left the skin on these red potatoes, for the added nutrients, and added some fresh garlic and dill! Don’t be intimidated by these lemon potatoes. Try them at your next meal!
