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!

This was great especially since we are cilantro lovers. I steamed baby carrots in the microwave, used green onion and Red wine vinegar. Even better the next day and the next. I'll make this again.

A really colourful and flavoursome side dish. I overcooked the potatoes the first time I began to follow this recipe, as I had not used red potatoes before, so we had mash for breakfast and then I started again. I cubed the potatoes before boiling on second attempt, so that I could keep an eye on them and it worked well. The wine vinegar really gives it a nice ZING.

Lovely! I added jalapenos that I sauteed with the onions and carrots. I bet it would be good with balsamic vinegar, too!

Very tasty and healthful salad. I used red wine vinegar, vege-sal for the salt and used the maximum amount of cilantro (yes, it was important to the dish). I added a half cup of onions for a total of 1 cup (as a result my BF thought it was a bit too oniony but I thought it was just fine.) As for the vegetables, I steamed the carrots in a steamer on top of the boiling potatoes for about 12 minutes. You could also boil both of them together I guess. The potato package recommended 8 minutes, but I didn't think they were done in the alloted time so I boiled longer. Also, I used about 30 baby carrots sliced in half. Thanks for this recipe!

Easy, tasty, and perfect for my husband who hates mayonaise. I used garlic salt for the seasoned salt. My kids did not like it, but that was expected. I think it would make a great side dish for a summer mexican menu. Maybe not authentic, but it's colorful and refreshing. Go heavy on the cilantro, it makes the dish.

Refreshing and bright, likely due to the wine vinegar + fresh cilantro. Will top my list for dinner guests -- can do most prep a day ahead. Will also be a favorite for pot lucks when stumped with the duty of bringing salad. Sorry to say my kids didn't like it, likely due to the wine vinegar + fresh cilantro. ha ha.
