You'll want to take this simple-to-assemble potato salad to all your picnics and outings. It's always on the menu when my tomato plants yield a bumper crop. Feel free to improvise by adding other fresh vegetables.


  • 5 to 6 medium red potatoes, cooked and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 3 to 4 plum tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 to 4 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 jar (5-3/4 ounces) pimiento-stuffed olives, drained and halved
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Lettuce leaves, optional


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Serve salad in a lettuce-lined bowl if desired.
