This was a really quick and easy potato salad and I love the bite the jalapeno gives the salad. I will be using this recipe again. The only thing that I will do different is to add in sweet pickle relish. That is just a personal preference.

I quadrupled this recipe (x4) for Gato's bday party (40 people) and it worked just great! I used orange, red and green bell peppers and this gave a confetti-like appearance, which suited the event! (I wish I had taken a photo, but it was just TOO busy!) One change I made was that I mixed the cayenne into the light mayonaise before adding to the vegetables so it would be throughout the dish. I It DOES have a bite, which we love, but some of our guests were less excited about that. Served with Chipotle Beef #59224, locally handmade tortillas and TEQUILA! EDIT: Made it again -- this time used red onion, which was GREAT and used equal parts Light mayo, plain FF yogurt and FF sour cream to equal 1/2 cup. A very light, refreshing option! This will be our preference!
