Greek Potato Salad

I am not a fan or traditional potato salad, I dislike mayo and eggs so for me it doesn't make the cut. There are, however so delicious alternatives! This is a dish that my dad prepares, it is full of both flavor and color. The taste---INCREDIBLE.
My new favorite potato salad. It will be yours too.

i'm not really a huge potato salad fan, but the olives and feta sound awesome... btw, you wrote "freen" onions on the recipe ingredients list!
