Yeah...all the reviews were right. It is a fantastic potato salad. I thought it might be too spicy for my 95 year old mother, but she also loved it. I did just use 1 teaspoon of the tobacco sauce.

Everybody has to try this one! DH told me to throw my other recipe away, he only wants this one from now on. Loved the flavor and went great with Recipe #107167.

It looks like ordinary potato salad, until you taste it! Loved the spices in this. I made this as written using turkey bacon. It gets better after chilling for a few hours. Thanx for a new and different potato salad!
