Wonderful flavor and color! I prefer this served at room temperature but you can make the salad several hours before and refrigerate it.

This is a GREAT recipe! If you like Kalamata olives and/or balsamic vinegar - this dish is worth a try!! I made the recipe exactly "as is" except that I doubled all the ingredients because we were going to a large party. Note - next time I will not double the sauce. It made way too much to cover the amount of potatoes I had. I was lucky that I poured it on slowly and stopped myself from just dumping it all on, I would have had very soupy potatoes otherwise. I made it all up when the potatoes were done cooking and then let it come to room temp and served it that way. We ate leftovers cold and can say I like it both ways but do prefer it at room temp. I can't even begin to describe the flavors. We LOVED this dish and I plan to put this with the recipes to impress/something different catagory. It's going to be a side dish of choice for many things this summer.

I made this for dinner tonight--my brother and his wife are visiting from New York State. Everyone was full of compliments for the salad's unusual taste. I marinated in the fridge several hours and the olive taste in the dressing blended well with the fairly emphatic garlic taste (which we loved). I used regular black olives having recently used up my kalamatas and I used only the 1/4 cup in the dressing and none in the salad itself. Otherwise I made the salad exactly as directed. My sister-in-law asked for the recipe. You've go a hit on your hands,Lorac!
