Sorry Pat, but this one just didn't zing for us. I felt it was lacking in something like a dressing or something juicy to meld the ingredients together. Very healthy though as it is. I used small purple skinned potatoes as that was all I had on hand. Made for Aussie Kiwi Swap March 2012

Really its a 5 plus - I dont usually say that at all, but Pat it was just such a wonderful combination of flavours. I dont believe in changing any recipe if I want to rate it. I always feel that at least for the first time, I do it "your way" other wise I would not have chosen it. its easy to prepare and the spicy flavour is just tingling in your mouth, its already become a firm favourite according to my DH, so thanks so much for posting. we served this along with a couple of other salads at a family Barbecue.
