Lime and Pepper Potato Salad

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by sassafrasnanc

A zippy potato salad that has South American roots. I changed this recipe to have a few less calories than the original recipe and I also used canned chipotle peppers with the sauce (cut back the amount if you don't like super spicy). It's really yummy and perfect for a hot summer night! Posted for ZWT4.

Really good potato salad. I used less salt and oil, and added four stalks of celery, which gave it a nice crunch.
