This was so much easier than boiling and peeling potatoes! It was really tasty and my family loved it. Before adding the mayonnaise, I measured it into a glass 1 cup measuring cup, added a tsp each of vinegar, sugar, and mustard. I stirred it up and then mixed into the other ingredients. I also left out the cheese and used yellow onion chopped up instead of green onion. The olives really made this recipe!

Very good flavor and nice variation from traditional potato salads.
