stuffed green olives
This is my dad's recipe and it is the best. I have been making it for years and I always get compliments. It is unlike any other potato salad. Adjust some of the ingredients to your taste. My daughter eliminates the radishes and substitutes black olives for the green. I'm spoiled. No other potato salad is good enough.
Was not that good; turned out very salty. I am sure that was do to the olives. The radishes & celery did give it a nice "crunch".
Absolutely the very best in potato salads!! Makes other potato dishes taste bland! Would not change a thing for it is perfect as is!
Excellent potato salad! I was looking for a way to use the radishes from our garden, and this recipe was perfect. I am going to prepare it every time I am invited to a picnic or a potluck.
What a refreshing twist on potato salad! Love it - will be making it again, and probably more often than regular/typical potato salad.
This is a delicious potato salad. I used Yukon Gold potatoes to keep it crisper. Only had half the bacon in it and it still got raves. I'm making it right now for Father's Day BBQ!
Very easy to make. The only thing, was that the potatoes I got out of the 10 lb store bag were kind of small, so I didn't know how many of them equaled 5, so I winged it. The remainder of the ingredients were about the same. My husband and mother kept saying how good it was. She said it's not "soupy" like some potato salads. He asked "when can you make this again?". My kids didn't care for it much. They said it was too spicey. I tasted the radishes before I cut them up, and they were in fact, hot little ones. So I would try them first, then add or subtract according. We have company coming soon that is vegetarian, and I'm going to make this again, but just substitue the bacon for fake soy bacon. Us meat eaters wont even taste the difference. Thank you for an easy, and terrific Potato Salad!
Really a top notch recipe. Skeptical at first but really surprised how well it turned out. Even surprised my toughest critic, my wife. Anyway, I would probably suggest a little mustard but this recipe is so flexible and easy to prepare (even a dummy like me).
