This is a really simple and quick potato salad. I take it on picnics with cold meats and biscuits. In fact, the leftovers would be great on a picnic with a few slices of pork and some leftover biscuits if you have any! We took it rock climbing the next day. The potatoes get more flavorful as they spend more time with the lemon, herbs, and oil. I recommend making it the day before you plan on eating it. Make sure you don’t overcook the potatoes so they remain firm enough not to crumble.
