This Salata de Cartofi cu Brinza is a delightful alternative to traditional potato salad. The recipe calls for red skinned potatoes, but it's grand with others too. Originally from Please to the Table, a Russian Cookbook.

I'm not a fan of mayo based potato salad so this was wonderful! I left out the olives since I don't like them, but my husband said it would have added something to the dish. We both said it was "repeatable" which is a good thing in this house! I also diced prior to cooking so I did not have to handle hot potatoes! I used dried dill.
