This is an extremely tasty potato salad with a vinagrette dressing made with a combination of red wine and balsamic vinegars. Makes an excellent side dish for any meal. Original recipe was found on the internet, but as I do in almost all recipes, have changed it to suit my taste. I know you will like this different way to prepare potato salad!

- 3⁄4 cup frozen peas, thawed

We liked this a lot! A wonderful addition to the Bruschetta burgers we made. It would be great with grilled chicken as well! I will definetly make again.
I enjoyed this immensely. Next time, I think I will cut down just a bit on the dressing, as it was a bit too wet. The flavors were just wonderful, though. A keeper!
This is a great alternative to the standard potato salad recipe. I used Good Seasons Italian salad dressing and mixed with the olive oil and vinegar.
