Italian Potato Salad Recipe
Very good and very Italian with its garlic, parsley olive oil and vinegar dressing. The potatoes are cooked, chopped, and bathed in this lovely dressing and then chilled overnight.
This classic potato salad that can be found on Italian tables from the North to the South is naturally vegan. Italians like to add cooked green beans, as well.

My Italian mother in law made the best potato salad, the only difference is red wine vinegar and fresh mint with the garlic, spring onions and parsley. Every time I make it everyone raves about it and ask me how I make it. People saying it’s too much vinegar try red wine vinegar, we don’t measure...we add the extra virgin olive oil and vinegar then taste! If needed add more!
Finely cubed potatoes and smoked salmon are paired with a simple lemony cream dressing in this salad usually served as an appetizer in Italy.
This potato salad is a mixture of roasted baby eggplants, potatoes, bell pepper, garlic, and onion in an olive oil-based dressing.
I don't know what seems strange about raw celery and onions. I've never made a patato salad that didn't have a variety of raw veg in it - onions, celery, peppers, etc. I've made a similar recipe to this one and my family really likes the variety of a potato salad w/olives and oil; versus traditional version mayo, mustard, etc. As far as "onion-y", that can easily be adjusted to taste.
