We all enjoyed this twist on potato salad. The flavours are powerful so would use this as the way to jazz up an ordinary meal. Would go very well with roast chicken

This is so easy to make and it makes such a lovely change to have with a salad, I added some black onion seeds and a bit of zest of lemon. Wonderful for a BBQ.

Made this twice now as part of different buffets and went down really well. Just a bit different than the normal potato salad. I added a pinch of tumeric to cooking water as suggested and pots took on a lovely yellow colour

Was having a barbecue with at least one vegan attending...and as I'm not a fan of mayonnaise-y potato salads anyway I jumped at the opportunity to find a decent vegan recipe, and this was perfect. Went down a storm - though next time I'll make a little bit less dressing as there was quite a bit of liquid left in the bottom of the bowl.

Flavours are fab, but it needs more Olive Oil for moisture. I served it on an oval platter, edged with salad leaves with the potato salad down the centre and sprinkled with Bombay Mix, everyone loved it!

I really liked the flavours in this, it smelt wonderful and it was a nice change to the standard mayonnaise based potato salad which I can feel going straight to my thighs :) , but found it a little dry. Might try again...

If you add a teaspoon of turmeric to the potatoes, when boiling, they will take on a more lemony colour too!

Fab!! I cooked the whole of this menu (ok I didn't make the bread) and it was brilliant. Everything complimented each other so well, the lemon potato salad was a star and the lamb was tender and so tasty. I cooked the aubergine in the oven and rather than collapse it exploded so it's probably a good idea to prick it beforehand. Such a nice change to have a themed bbq that works well rather than the usual burger/hot dogs. I'll def do this again and will do the potato salad as dish for a buffet.
