Posting so I won't lose it . This is the only Nicoise Pasta salad recipe that I have found that also includes potatoes. I have not seen another quite like this on the web...and believe me, I have searched!! Refreshing, tasty, and good to have around for those lazy days when you don't feel like cooking.
