  2. Whisk olive oil and vinegar together in a bowl; stir in garlic. Pour dressing over potatoes and lightly toss to coat.
  3. Mix red bell pepper, green olives, shallot, parsley, salt, and pepper into potatoes. Serve salad with lemon wedges to squeeze over each serving.

I would cut back on the oil & add more olives. I will try it again since it is a nice alternative to mayonnaise based salads.
