Very nice dish, but I tried and actually preferred it as a hot side dish, not a salad. I have wilted chopped tomatoes in the oven with garlic and oregano, so it wasn't too saucy. Went well with some roasted chicken!

This was nice, but I did make some changes to it, given the comments above. I used a bit of tomato purée and some fresh cherry tomatoes instead of a tin, so mine wasn't too saucy. I also used normal red pepper and cooked it for a bit with the onion. I would make this again, but use newer potatoes next time, as mine were getting a bit old.

i used fresh cherry tomatoes and just took the skins off mid cooking. this potato salad was okay but kind of agree with violet.
i think the cooking takes something away from the freshness you expect from a potato salad.
nextime i will try it uncooked (well naturally will cook the potatoes),
and use fresh tomatoes. it would also be interesting to try a mayo/yogurt version....

Sorry to say I was disappointed with this as it looked so nice. I made it exactly according to the recipe with no changes. The result was just a tomato sauce over boiled potatoes. Oh well.... :(
