Comments: 6/24/2010 - Gail made it for the Division picnic. It turned out well but is too strong for Gail's liking.
9/1/2013 - I used about 2 1/3 lbs of Yukon gold potatoes - maybe overcooked in 32 minutes. I scaled up most ingredients appropriately except I only increased the caper berries to 1/3 cup and kept the mustard at 1/4 cup.

The original recipe from John Scott and Stephanie Miller was for a much larger amount.

5 lbs potatoes, boil in the jacket till just tender, and peel while warm
2 med or one large Bermuda onion sliced thinly
1 cup drained rinsed caper berries
1.5 cups drained and sliced green pimiento stuffed olives
1 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 to 3/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley

I do all the chopping/ slicing while the potatoes boil. I mix the chopped stuff and mustard and olive oil together and let it sit at room temp. while the potatoes finish cooking, cooling, peeling, cubing stuff happens. This allows the onions and stuff to soften and marinate.

Add the potatoes, ideally while they are still slightly warm so they absorb the flavors well. This recipe is best made the day of and never refrigerated.
