Wow, what a delicious medley of ingredients for a salad. We loved it with the olives! We have had it several times and will have it many more in the future!

Te chuparse los dedos! I made this as written except I used a medley of marinated olives which I left whole. I was concerned that there would be too much garlic, and I usually add sugar to a vinaigrette, but this recipe is great as is. While it is garicky, somehow it also has enough sweetness to be very pleasing. Thanks for posting. Made for ZWT#5.

Off-the-charts goodness in a serving bowl! Yummy-ola! My new favorite zesty potato salad!!! I messed up and used sherry cooking wine (not vinegar), but didn't seem to affect the taste in a negative way (altho' I'll make it again sometime the "right way!"). Next time I will use Kalamata olives (I had some "Greek Salad Olives" this time). Very nice blend of flavors, colors, and visually appeal. I wonder how this would be as a leftover, to fry it a bit? Hmmm... Well anyway, *made for ZWT 3 Spanish Adventure*
