I really liked this recipe as a starting point. My husband doesn't like mayo and we love Balsamic Vinegar so I thought I would give this one a shot. I did make some changes. I cooked the potatoes in the microwave like others suggested and was happy with that (it was a very hot day and I wasn't dying to set up a pot of boiling water) method. Do remember to check the potatoes to make sure that they are cooking evenly. I cooked them in the microwave in 5 minute increments and then tested them. I also chunked the potatoes, not diced. I had some fresh garden picked green beans so I added those to the potato mix. I used fresh red pepper instead of roasted red pepper because I happened to have one on hand - I was happy with that and would do it again. I used kalamata olives, again, had them on hand and we love them. They are so much more flavorful than canned black olives. Don't skip the artichokes, they add a great taste. For the dressing, I added together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 3 fresh garden basil leaves instead of parsley, a teaspoon of dijon mustard (approx), and a small amount of pure maple syrup for a drop of sweet. I pureed it all together in my Magic Bullet and it made a fantastic balsamic dressing. I poured it on the potato mixture and let it marinate for the day. We had it for dinner as a side and we all loved it. Also, you can add salt and pepper to taste but be careful with the salt if you are using kalamata olives, they are salty already.
