5 Stars, finally a potato salad mayonnaise-hater DH can love! I loved the lime juice with the salsa, apparently that's one of my favorite taste combinations. I made the recipe as written. If making this ahead, I would package the sliced mushrooms separately so they wouldn't get too soggy. Thanks for posting this, mliss! Made for Sept 2008 Veg*n Swap.
This was a terrific potato salad that I would make again. I don't eat mushrooms, so I substituted olives (less than 1 cup, to save calories). I also reduced the amount of corn oil. I used a salsa that contained artichokes and olives. The only problem I had with this was that it was a bit watery, so next time I would simmer the salsa, lime juice and oil for a bit longer. Otherwise a great alternative to a traditional mayonnaise-based potato salad! I loved the cayenne in this too. Thanks!
