Olive lovers will enjoy this healthy, mayonnaise-free potato salad.
I started with my grandmother's classic Potato Salad with Olive Oil and Parsley and added some sliced pimento-stuffed green olives that I had on hand. The result was delicious.
Use 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup of sliced olives, to taste - or even more, if you like.
1 pound medium-size red potatoes or other waxy potatoes, peeled
1/4 to 1/3 cup pimiento-stuffed green olives, sliced
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (preferably Italian flat-leaf parsley)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Boil the potatoes, uncovered, in enough salted water to cover until tender (approx. 15-35 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes).
Rinse the cooked potatoes in cold water to stop the cooking process, and let sit until cool.
Once the potatoes have cooled, cut them into 1-inch cubes.
Gently toss the potato cubes with the olives, olive oil, parsley, salt, and pepper.
Serve at room temperature or slightly chilled.
