I made this potato salad for my loving neighbor who raved about it and ask for the recipe. My neighbor has been ill and is now feeling much better but still weak so I've been helping a bit. She said that the sweet/sour aspect was right on point and that she will be making a big batch for their first BBQ of the coming season. Thanks for sharing your recipe threeovens. :D
