    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.

    Serves: 6 

    • 5 large desiree potatoes
    • 1 large cucumber, diced
    • 5 stalks celery, diced
    • 1 large red onion, diced
    • 3/4 cup green olives with pimento, diced
    • 1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
    • 1/2 cup (125ml) red wine vinegar
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper, to taste

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:40min  ›  Ready in:1hour10min 

    1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan then cover with water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until the potatoes are tender; about 15 minutes. Drain and cool then cut into 2cm cubes.
    2. Combine the potatoes, cucumber, celery, onion and olives in a large bowl.
    3. Whisk together the olive oil, red wine vinegar and garlic powder in a small bowl. Pour the dressing over the potatoes and vegetables; mix well.
    4. Season with salt and pepper then chill. Stir the potato salad again before serving.

    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)
