    The highlight in this recipe is there are lots of vegetables and flavours. The olives are my favourite part! To save time I usually chop all the vegetables and make the dressing while the potatoes are boiling.

    This is a delicious potato salad! The olives give it an extra kick! I prepared this for a picnic at Wolftrap Park (a US Park for the performing arts). Everyone enjoyed it. My congratulations to the person who submitted it!  -  31 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    I don't know what seems strange about raw celery and onions. I've never made a patato salad that didn't have a variety of raw veg in it - onions, celery, peppers, etc. I've made a similar recipe to this one and my family really likes the variety of a potato salad w/olives and oil; versus traditional version mayo, mustard, etc. As far as "onion-y", that can easily be adjusted to taste.  -  23 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
