Ripe Olive Potato Salad


This is an updated version of the potato salad that my Grandma Major always made, and then that my mom always made (after making her own updates as well). Its funny, because I asked my mom to email me the actual recipe that we've based it on, and even my grandma didn't follow it. I have no idea where the original recipe came from; all I know is that its what my mom grew up with as well. It's by far my favorite, and is always a hit whenever I make it. I like to use oil-cured black olives and roasted red peppers from the olive bar at the grocery store instead of canned black olives and jarred pimentos.

What you will need

3 cups new red potatoes, cut into 1 1/2" pieces

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

1/2 cup oil cured black olives, pitted and sliced

2 hard boiled eggs, sliced

2 celery stalks, sliced

1/2 cup cucumber, diced

1/4 cup pimento or roasted red pepper, diced

1/4 cup red onion, chopped

1/2 cup mayonnaise

paprika for garnish
