Recipe by Meredith K.
This recipe is really simple, with the potatoes roasted, not boiled. I posted it because I had touble finding a recipe for roasting potatoes for a salad using the Search engine. So when I did finally find what I needed, I put this recipe together.

Whoa! This is now my number one favorite potato salad of all time! Nutty how delicious! My "changes" just included putting more of stuff. I tripled the potatoes and dressing, then put more pickles (chopped chunky), calamata olives (plenty), a whole red bell pepper, a whole bunch of scallions and half a bunch of parsley. Dear lord! Where is the picnic?? And my blue ribbon?? I think one of the guests might not like it because he likes everything plain, but guess what? He can stop at the store for a tub of that junk that tastes like airplane glue. :)
