Italian-Style Potato #Salad #Recipe!

Hey Everyone!! :-)

This is one of my favorite potato salad recipes and it's perfect for a picnic because there's no mayo to go bad. Enjoy! :-)

6 large potatoes scrubbed and chopped into 1-inch cubes
1 zucchini chopped
1 yellow summer squash chopped
1 large carrot peeled and shredded
1 red onion chopped fine
1 green bell pepper seeded and chopped
1 cup broccoli florets chopped
1 cup pickled pepperoncini peppers chopped
1 cup black olives pitted and sliced
6 cloves garlic minced
1 cup fresh basil chopped
1/2 cup fresh oregano chopped
1 tbsp red pepper flakes (optional)
1.5 cups olive oil
3/4 cup red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

Boil the potatoes in salted water until fork-tender, drain the water from the potatoes, and cool the potatoes completely.  In a bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, garlic, basil, oregano, pepper flakes (optional), and salt and pepper. In a larger bowl, toss the potatoes, olives, and vegetables together and then pour the dressing over them, tossing to coat. Serve chilled.

Buon Appetito!
