Questions & Replies

  1. can the potato sald with kalamata olives be made a day ahead and served chilled?


  1. Haven't made it yet, I assume you add the chopped artichokes with the rest of the ingredients. Seem to be left out of the directions.
  2. I LOVED this at first. Unfortunately I made a huge batch (even cutting the recipe in half) for just two people so I ended up getting really tired of it. My fiance however did not like it (he prefers a more mayo-based potato salad). I'd probably make it again but I would definitely cut the recipe WAY down.
  3. 1 million stars would not be enough for this recipe! this is the best potato salad that i have eaten since my mother died, hers was delicious. this potato salad was so flavorful with bright pops of flavor and textures from the olives, green onions, artichokes and capers. i brought, it to a brunch party and everyone loved it. thanks so much Cookgirl.
  4. Love it!!!
  5. Wonderful change to regular potato salads! The oil and vinegar was very subtle and this allowed for all of the other ingredients to really stand out. Great presentation with all the beautiful colors.<br/>Made for the Olive tag, July, 2011.
