Warm Potato Salad

We make this potato salad often.  It does not have mayonnaise in the dressing so, it is ideal for a picnic or cook-out.

Ingredients:

4-5 Yukon Gold Potatoes

3/4 cup sliced red onion

1/2 cup chopped parsley

1/3 cup capers, drained

2/3 cup olive oil

red wine vinegar to taste

salt and pepper

Place whole potatoes in a large stockpot and fill with water.

Place the pot on the stove and bring to a boil.  Cook about 25 minutes or until fork tender.

Drain in a colander.

Place the potatoes on a cutting board.  When they have cooled, chop into bite-size pieces.  Add the potatoes to a large serving bowl.

Add chopped parsley….

Chopped onion….

the drained capers…

and olive oil.

Sprinkle in red wine vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.

Toss it all together and it’s done! Simple, yet delicious.
