“This is one of my favorite recipes handed down from my mom. The best thing is there are lots of vegetables and flavors, and it's usually a welcome change from standard American versions. The olives are the best part! To save time, I usually chop all the vegetables and make the dressing while the potatoes are boiling.” - by marisella
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Place potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and cool, then cut into 1-inch cubes.
- Combine the potatoes, cucumber, celery, onion, and olives in a large bowl.
- Whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Pour the dressing over the potatoes and vegetables; mix well. Season with salt and pepper, then chill. Stir the potato salad again before serving.

See moreis one and my family really likes the variety of a potato salad w/olives and oil; versus traditional version mayo, mustard, etc. As far as "onion-y", that can easily be adjusted to taste. "
