Izzy, this is a different potato salad for sure. I loved it. So did my family and our guests on July 1. We are garlic and cilantro lovers. I think that the cilantro gives this recipe a great flavour. I would recommend this recipe to people who don't like an overly creamy potato salad because I think the flavour of the garlic and the cilantro counteract the creaminess of the mayo. But this is not an overly creamy potato salad.. It is delicious and a great change from the usual potato salad. Thank you.

I thought that this called for too much garlic, but figured what the heck, more for me if no one else eats it! But the roasting of the garlic makes it nutty and a PERFECT balance for the cilantro. This was a different, deliscious way to make pototo salad! YUMM!!!!

Wow Izzy! Like the other reveiwer, I was worried that all that garlic would overpower the dish. It was fine, the roasting mellows it quite nicely! I love cilantro, but apparently there are those that hate it, and they wouldn't come near this salad. Oh well, their loss!
