Looking for some type of potato to go with grilled hamburgers I found this recipe in my recipe box. Not sure what makes Spanish potato salad but it was good and different. I used Yukon Gold potatoes and omitted the chopped black olives in the dish. This salad does need to marinate for a while. The longer the potatoes sit in the dressing the more flavor it has. I mixed this up in the morning refrigerated it all day and let come to room temp for about an hour. My family liked the dish but wasn t crazy about it at room temp. They did enjoy it much better when I heated the leftovers in the toaster oven and served it as a hot side dish. Read More

This was very good. Similar to my mom's German Potato salad. I left out the black olives but I will try them next time. I'm thinking kalamata would be best. Read More

Great potluck dish. Doesn't need the bacon. I recommend cutting the potatoes into 1" cubes and then boiling--easier to cook and eat. I let them marinade overnight then added the olives apple and onion the next day and served at room temperature. Read More
