This is sure to please any avid potato salad lover. I miss going fishing and enjoying a good potato salad and sandwich lunch by the lake but now, I dont have to miss it at all.

Thank you thank you thank you! I was doubtful, but in this low carb state a person will try ANYTHING to get away from meat and cheese...and we actually thought we had potato salad for dinner tonight! I made it like I make my own but substituting the rutabaga for potatoes and IT WORKED! Hubby and I ate the whole bowl for dinner and I had to swear to go shopping for another rutabaga tomorrow! (I promised I'd try to fry one next)Thanks so much for this great idea..I have wandered off the well worn path for new ideas and am so glad to have found this! Thanks again!!
