    2       lb           Waxy potatoes
                         Freshly ground black pepper
      1/2   lb           Onions -- thinly sliced
    2       tb           Wine vinegar
      1/2   ts           Sugar
    5       oz           Kalamatas or thro£mbes
                         - (Greek olives)
    2       tb           Capers
      1/2   c            Fruity olive oil
    1                    Garlic clove -- minced
      1/2   c            Minced flat leaf Parsley
   Boil the potatoes in their skins in plenty of salted
   water until just tender.  Run cold water over them,
   drain, and leave to cool enough to handle.
   To pickle the onions, place them in a saucepan just
   large enough to hold them, pour in the vinegar, and 2
   tablespoons water, and sprinkle with sugar.  Cover the
   pan and bring to a boil.  Stir, cover, and simmer for
   1 minute.  Shake the covered saucepan and put it aside
   for 5 minutes to steam.
   Peel and slice or roughly dice the potatoes and place
   in a serving bowl. Sprinkle with the olives, capers,
   and pickled onions - with their juice - olive oil,
   garlic and parsley.  Toss and season to taste.
