    Cookgirl's Note:

    From There weren't enough russet potatoes on hand in our pantry and I went ahead and substituted a few Yukon Golds. The turmeric was my addition. I'm confident that with a few simple modifications, this salad could be served cold in summertime. Will test!

      This was great thanks Cookgirl. It looks like it has a heap of ingredients, but it comes together really quickly and is ever so simple to make. I used two chilies and left the seeds in as we like it hot. I made this and let it cool to room temperature to serve-it was fantastic as a salad. The golden raisins were a nice touch with the spice, heat, herbs and lemon.
