Greek Potato Salad

I saw this recipe in our local newspaper a couple of months ago, and I finally got around to making it.  When I told Al that I was going to make potato salad, he wanted to make sure that I had mayonnaise, hard-boiled eggs, and sweet pickle relish on hand.  He was very disappointed when I told him that none of those were in this salad.  But once he tasted it, he loved it!  This is a very different tasting potato salad, and it was delicious, especially after it sat in the refrigerator over night!  I will be making it again, very soon!

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
