My Nonnie used to make this potato salad for me whenever I was home for the holidays. It's a great alternative to mayo-based potato salads. Red wine vinegar works well, too.

Too much vinegar. Loved the garlic and added celery. If I make this again I will cut the vinegar way back. Read More

I am not a fan of mayo so I have been making my potato salad this way for years. My nonna used to make it just like this too! The longer it 'marinades' the better though it's not completely necessary if you need it sooner. Read More

I make a version of this recipe as a hot potato dish...I thin slice usually red skin Yukon or whatever you have on hand...put them in a micro safe bowl twist of sea salt chopped onion(we prefer sweet/or red) garlic...I like to use fresh basil and/or oregano(if you don't have fresh at least rub the dry in your hands it will make the flavor burst!)I think these herbs are more Italian I lived there "the early years"...the big finish and EVOO!I cover the bowl with one of those vented made for covering thingies I can't tell you for how long 'cause I don't know the wattage/quantity...common sense let them "rest" take the top off sprinkle with Parmesan cheese! They will not lack flavor I'm making the cold/room temp. for a picnic in the mountains. tomorrow TMI...The potatoes are healthy...I make them for 2-4 in the micro. I boiled them for a crowd stove top...hint skins have most of the vitamins/potatoes off the charts with potassium...YUM Read More

In addition to the parsley, I used tarragon and rosemary (1/3 cup total with each herb in equal proportions), which I think gave it more of the flavors I remember from studying abroad in Italy. Also, I disagree with those who say the vinegar was too strong. It is not supposed to taste like traditional cream based potato salads, so don't expect it to. The vinegar was just right for me, maybe even not enough. Perhaps those people used white vinegar instead of white wine vinegar? I chose white balsamic, and someday when I have more money, I will splurge and try it with a gourmet bottle of champagne vinegar. Read More

I love this recipe although I do add some sweet onion and red bell pepper and plenty of salt and pepper and leave the skins on. Fresh herbs such as basil oregano or rosemary would be good too but I wouldn't use dried for this recipe they wouldn't do it justice! But it is also fine as -- sometimes less is more! Read More
