Vinaigrette potato salads are definitely our thing, so we really enjoyed this. I would not add mayo to this. I added a little extra vinegar. The green beans and olives are a really nice addition to it.

This is fantastic! Mayo is one of the few foods I absolutely can't stand, so it was great to find a good vinaigrette potato salad! Definatly my favorite of the ones I've tried. I used 6 cloves of garlic instead of two, and it had a wonderful flavor. I highly reccomend this dish!

This is a tangy salad. I'd prefer a creamier dressing, so next time I'll stir in a dallop of mayo. The kalamata olives are a nice touch, and set this salad apart. I used regular onions, so to take off the edge that raw onions have, I roasted most, but not all, of the onion slices on top of the potatoes for the last 5 minutes.
