Colombian Potato Salad

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Steppmom

A tasty, tangy, colorful and LOW FAT! potato salad I concocted after having a similar one at a restaurant operated by brothers from Columbia. It's a great change from the same boring mayo-based potato salad. TRY IT!

This was good. I added the lesser amount of cilantro, and wished I'd had more. The salad would have benefited from the added flavor. But nice!
