This is such a fabulous potato salad. I've made it several times over the years. I love the flavor combination of the grated carrot, fresh dill, and caraway seed. I use the red potatoes as recommended, since they hold their texture nicely. I'm so glad you posted the recipe, Rochsann! Roxygirl in Colo.
