The orange juice really brings out a nice kick to this salad. Plan ahead this needs to chill for a minimum of 3 hours before serving. I sometimes add in crumbled feta cheese. I suggest to double this recipe, it is really a delicious salad! All ingredients can be adjusted to suit taste.

  2. Cook the potatoes (leave whole do not slice) until fork-tender, about 20-25 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes; remove to a bowl.

I modified the recipe a bit- less onion, didn't have fresh parsley, and no capers- I don't think I have ever even eaten a caper- but we all enjoyed the change, I too am always looking for a "new" potato salad and we were all pleased with the results- thanks so much for sharing!

I tagged this recipe in Zaar Tag to use up the capers in the refrigerator and I'm glad I did, therefore using a little less capers than indicated. This potato salad is a nice change from the traditional potato salad (and also a bit healthier I think) which we enjoyed. Thanks for sharing!
