Red potato salad with a light oil, vinegar, and herb dressing. No mayonnaise. My kids love it! If you like, you can leave the skins on the potatoes for a more colorful dish.

This is a good jumping off recipe but the necessary change is boiling the potatoes already cubed so that the dressing can be added while the potatoes are still hot. Adding an oil-based dressing to cold potatoes just doesn't work. My tweaked recipe is 1/3 cup olive oil & 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar to about 2 lbs of potatoes. My husband likes me to add a tsp of sugar but I prefer it without sugar. I also add chopped celery scallions and a clove of minced garlic. Read More

This was OK. After reading the reviews I cut the oil in half added some garlic salt and garlic pepper. Read More

A little oily. I'll cut the olive oil back to 1/3 cup next time. Great with lightly steamed green beans added to it as well. Read More

Very good - a little oily - I added extra potatoes. Wonder if the recipe should be 5 lbs potatoes and not just 5 potatoes since red potatoes are usually small. Read More

This salad had great flavour but I found it a little too oily. Would cut down on the oil a bit next time. Read More

This salad was good but I had to use 6 large red potatoes only half an onion because it had too much onion for us and I used an extra tablespoon vinegar. Read More

I used 1 pound of small red potatoes and I could have used 1 1/2 pounds for the amount of oil. Also the olive oil was too strong a taste and I used olive oil meant for salads. I won't make it again. Read More

Oh yes just what I was looking for. Very simple and ingredients that combine well for a satisfying meal or side-dish. I've served this to many at home and for parties. Leaving the skins on is a good idea too. This dish reminds me of the Greek version of potato salad I had as a kid. It can be eaten warmed up or straigth from the fridge. It keeps well and also a good way to cook up potatoes you haven't used up that may go bad if you don't DO SOMETHING soon with 'em. Thanks. "Edie" is a household name around our place. Read More

This tasted like cold potatoes soaked in olive oil....not something we really enjoyed here. We each took one bite and trashed the rest. Sorry. Read More
