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!
