Reviews for Potato Salad Bites
"I love this idea! I've made these a couple times, and I too like to leave out the olives. I throw in 1/4 cup finely chopped celery and 2 tablespoons pickle relish."
"I made these for a "finger-food" luncheon & they were a huge hit! I left out the olives (because I don't care for them) and used miracle whip instead of mayo for a little zip. They took awhile to come together, but well worth the effort. Plus you can make them a day ahead & store in fridge. Be careful how you slice the potato in half, you want to make sure it'll sit flat first. I had a bunch of lop-sided ones on my serving platter :)"

"I made these for a family party & they disappeared so quickly. The dicing is a little time-consuming but they were well worth the effort."
"Very tasty! Great to take to a BBQ."
