Oops... left these comments out of my prior review: to make this Whole30 compliant, in addition to the capers and olives, also check mustard ingredients and do not use the optional Parmesan cheese. The salad is perfect without it.

Bright, fresh flavors and a perfect "lighter" version of potato salad. Very good as written, but I add more capers/olives and use large garlic-stuffed olives (sliced into 3rds). I've also subbed finely minced onion and a sprinkle of garlic powder when out of shallots. Be sure to cut the potatoes before cooking, even if small. The dressing absorbs much better. Bonus...Whole30 compliant (check the labels on the olives and capers).

This is a most delicious recipe...sooo Good. I added more green olives and capers....I also used the green olives that had a red center...I used yellow yukon and they tasted great but I like the color of the red potatoes you have in the picture...next time I will use both...
