Refreshing twist on potato salad. Made it as written and loved it. Next time I will add celery and some chopped red or orange pepper for more crunch. Thank you for a good recipe.

This sounds like what I was looking for! A friend of mine makes a delicious potato salad with green beans, olive oil and such but WILL NOT GIVE ME THE RECIPE! Lol, it's become a bit of a joke. This sounds wonderful.

By FAR the best potato salad I've ever had!

Made exactly as called for. Served warm, nothing to write home about; it tasted as if there was too much oil in the dressing. However, served cold, it was surprisingly good. Will probably make again and just serve it cold.

Super easy to make and very light tasting. Used fresh basil but dried parsley. Definitely will do again.

Excellent! Very fresh tasting.

Used balsamic vinegar, no fresh basil or parsley, just the cheesy dried parsley flakes, and it still was excellent. I really liked the piquant flavor of the oil/vinegar/lemon juice mixture. It enhanced the potato flavor instead of masking or overwhelming it. Can't wait to taste it tomorrow after it seasons overnight in the fridge!

This was delicious. I mixed it up a bit by adding fresh green beans - cut in bite sized pieces - just as the potato water started boiling. Both were done in about 8 - 10 minutes. Also, used minced shallot instead of onion for a milder taste. The dish was colorful and delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
