This recipe is not only a wonderful side dish, but also hearty enough to make a satisfying late-night supper. It’s delicious with both baby red or white potatoes, and if you can’t find those, use larger potatoes cut in quarters. Wolfgang Hanau – West Palm Beach, FL

"Did not use the capers, olives, or green onion. I would like these additions, but my family wouldn't. I thought these were good."

"These were great and very easy. The taste was good. I forgot the olives and didn't use capers. I liked it just the way it was."

"I was a little hesitant about making this thinking that with the capers and the Greek olives that it might turn out a bit overwhelming/salty. But I loved it! The olive oil mellowed it out smoothly and everything went together beautifully!"
