1. Bring potatoes to a boil in a large pot of salted water. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 25 to 35 minutes, or until tender; drain. Peel and cut potatoes into 1- to 1 1/2-inch pieces. Place in a large bowl along with seal-lions, olives, pimientos, basil, and parsley. Do not mix at this point.
2. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Beat with a fork to blend. Toss potatoes gently with dressing. Season with additional salt, if needed.
