Wonderful potato salad. Great recipe and fantastic on a hot summers night. I followed the recipe exactly and it was terrific! The flavour was great and so the salad was so colourful! The family loved it and and its saying something when my DD and DS get up from the dinner table and pack the leftovers for school/work next day! A great recipe every potato salad lover should try. Thanks Deb will make this one again!
