2,2 lbs small potatoes, well scrubbed and halved

5 stalks celery, chopped
4 tbsp pickled capers, drained
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
15 olives, pitted
fresh basil, chopped

4 tbsp olive oil
1 large lemon
sea salt & black pepper to taste

1. Start by boiling the potatoes (unpeeled) in lightly salted water for about 20 min or until fork tender. Let them cool.
2. Mix olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper in small bowl, set aside while making the salad.
3. Toss tomatoes, celery stalks, capers, onion, olives and basil in a medium bowl. Add the potatoes and the marinade and toss gently again. Serve on plates and top with fresh basil.
