The Andouille sausage was a really great addition here! I got distracted and overcooked my potatoes a little bit, so my salad wasn't as pretty as it should've been, but that was totally my fault. I don't like green bell pepper, so I subbed in a red one instead (for some reason, I don't mind the taste of any other color of bell pepper, just the green ones). The vinegar was a little bit strong, but it might have just been the particular one I used. I would make this again -- the spice and meat in it make it a definite guy pleaser. Thanks for posting!

This was really great! I did not miss my ole buddy, ole pal mayo one bit! I did not measure the dressing ingredients exactly, so I may have doubled them, mmmmm...
