  1. Not the most ”traditional” papatoslata we have in Greece,but ok
    For a more rustic patatosalata add potatoes in quarters or big chunks, red thin sliced onion, parsley, fresh dill, dry oregano and optional black or whatever olives.And from dressing drizzel the salad with red wine vinegar and lots of olive oil
