Instructions on How to Prepare Greek Potato Salad With Onions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place each potato and onion on a baking sheet and bake for about one hour. You’ll know the potatoes and onions are cooked when they’re tender. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Add the olive oil, red wine, vinegar, fennel seeds, salt, pepper, and capers to a bowl and whisk together. Cut the potatoes and onions into small pieces and add to a large bowl. Pour the vinaigrette over and toss to coat. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to twenty four hours before serving. Garnish with parsley just before serving.
