Right on target, and didn't miss a beat on this recipe. Loved this for the bit of spice, and so yummy to the last bite! I decided to cut the olives into slices, (as another reviewer suggested) but stayed true to the recipe....and using red-skin potatoes, this dish looked absolutely patriotic in presentation. Another winner, elle! Thanks! Made for Veggie Recipe Swap!

This potato salad is nice and spicy! It's different from most potato salads. I really enjoyed the jalapeno stuffed olives, but think I'll slice them and then half the slices next time so I get a few more pieces in each bite. I turns out a little pink because of the cayenne pepper, but if you don't mind the appearance, I think you will love this potato salad.
