Italian Style Potato Salad

I personally like this recipe because it is so basic, yet has such great flavor. You can add to the salad by chopping up some onions too, but I prefer mine without. Try to use potatoes which are good for salads, like red or yellow skin potatoes. But you can use any type really, as I use whatever I have on hand.
  Potatoes 5 Medium, peeled and chopped in 1 inch cubes
  Chopped crushed garlic 2 Clove (10 gm)
  Chopped parsley 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Extra virgin olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  White wine vinegar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Pepper 1 Pinch

1. Boil the potatoes in a large pot until they are tender, but still firm. The time can vary for different types of potatoes, so check periodically. For baking potatoes, it is about 10 minutes.
2. Drain and let cool. Run under cold water to prevent further cooking if concerned about overcooking.
3. In a large bowl, mix the potatoes, parsley, vinegar, garlic, olive oil and add salt and pepper to taste.
4. Cover and leave in refrigerator until needed.
