    Our grandson is gluten and egg white intolerant. I made the salad as directed using red potatoes for dinner tonight. It was a hit with everyone including our granddaughter who said that it wasn't half bad. From her, that is a major compliment as she doesn't like potato salads in general. This will be the go-to recipe in the future. Thanks.

    We love this potato salad! Friends have asked for the recipe after tasting it.

    This is wonderful - fresh, light and flavorful. Took it to a BBQ and everyone loved it. I don't like olives (too salty!), but replaced the canola oil with olive oil to add a hint of the flavor.

    This has become my favorite summer standby. I always the ingredients on hand and try to put a batch in the fidge once a week. Sometimes I substitute celery for the cucumber.

    This recipe was great. I got rave reviews from my BF and brought in the leftovers to work. The whole office asked for the receipe. I also substituted olive oil for canola. And omitted the olives. Only tweek for next time: I would chop up the potatoes a little smaller. This time I chopped into quarters, next time I will chop into 8ths.

    This is an excellent potato salad. I've served it twice for dinner parties and this recipe gets raves with everyone wanting the recipe. The only additions I make to this recipe is to add finely chopped parsley and cilantro. It also keeps very well so you can make it ahead of time.

    By far my favorite potato salad. Excellent! I make it every chance I get for picnics, bbq's, and weekend meals. Great for guests and family. Don't change a thing and it comes out wonderfully. Can't wait to make it again.

    This recipe was amazing! I substituted red potato for sweet potato and omitted the olives. Scrumptious!

    Great side for a Holiday BBQ! I brought this to cookout and everyone raved about it. Such fresh flavors, no one missed the mayo. I couldn't find seasoned rice vinegar so I bought plain and added more S&P and some Greek seasoning to the dressing.

    This is one of the best potato salad recipe I have ever tasted! Wonderfully light but flavorful.

    delicious. my whole family raved about this potato salad. I love that it doesn't use mayonnaise, it is tangy and light. I didn't have red or green pepper and it still turned out delicious.

    I was very disappointed by this recipe, especially after the rave reviews. I felt that it was more of a salad than a potato salad. Although I was looking for a "light" potato salad, the dressing here was virtually non-existent and my guests picked through the many vegetables to get to the potatoes. I was embarrassed by this dish at a large party and will not make it again.

    The flavors and colors are wonderful. Makes an elegant side dish. And not having to use a lot of oil and still maintaining the moistness is quite incredible. I am always amazed when someone slams a recipe because it wasn't "potato salad" enough. Do they not read the ingredients? When you are adding 5 or more different ingredients wouldn't you realize that it is not going to end up being an egg and mayonnaise salad? And the guests were picking out the vegetables? The salad was not an embarrassent. Unfortunately your guests lacked couth.

    Great recipe. Easy to prepare. Everyone who tries it likes it. I've also added chopped cilatro, poblano pepper, and parsley for a different twist.

    We enjoyed this dish, but it's nothing we'll look forward to making again. We enjoyed the cucumber in it, and were impressed with how much flavor the potato absorbed. The other veggies didn't pick up much flavor, though.

    Wonderful!!! Only change I made: didn't have cucumber so I substitued celery. Left out olives because we hate them. Will definitely make this again.

    Excellent. Easy to make, not a "heavy" taste and looks pretty in the bowl. Guests raved about it at a BBQ and it's definately "waist friendly". Good for picnics as it has no mayo, and tastes good even when it's warm. One I will make again.
