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. :)

This was a an awesome addition to our cook out. I followed the recipe exactly,(except I tripled it with no problem) and added the red peppers and olives. My guests loved it. I also made it the day before and refrigerated over night. The flavors blended really well. Next time I will get it out of the fridge sooner, I think it tastes better when it is not to chilled. Great recipe, Thanks!

Daaaah-licious! This recipe really lets the potato flavor shine through. I may have used a little more of the veggies than was called for. The only thing I did different was sprinkle the vinegar directly on the potatoes after they were cut. I think this way less of the dressing is absorbed, so you don't need to use as much.
