    About this recipe: This is one of my favourite recipes handed down from my mum. The best thing is there are lots of vegetables and flavours, and it's usually a welcome change from standard American versions. The olives are the best part! To save time, I usually chop all the vegetables and make the dressing while the potatoes are boiling.

    Serves: 6 

    • 5 large yellow/ Yukon Gold potatoes
    • 1 large cucumber, chopped
    • 5 stalks celery, chopped
    • 1 large red onion, chopped
    • 3/4 cup green olives with pimento, chopped
    • 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

    1. Place potatoes in a large saucepan, 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 2.5cm 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. Season with salt and pepper, then chill. Stir the potato salad again before serving.
