Italian Potato Salad

6 large white potatoes - scrubbed and boiled, do not over boil
1 med. onion diced
1/4 cup celery diced small
1 or 2 tbl. fresh basil - chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbs. minced garlic (if desired)
1 tbs. dried oregano
!/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar

Cook potatoes in salted water until tender (apx. 20 min.). Drain and allow to cool slightly. Peel if desired and slice into 1/4 inch slices. Add rest of ingredients and gently fold until potatoes are coated. Cover and let stand for 2-3 hours. Italians usually serve this salad at room temperature. Stir gently before serving so as to not break the potato slices.
