A rich savoury change from the basic potato salad.

Top Review by Heather3271

This was a simple, quick, very creative recipe that was a great twist on an old family fave. We felt like we were missing in this recipe the little bit of the kick that we're used to. So, next time I'll adapt it to our tastes with a flavored pesto sauce (like sun-dried tomato pesto) instead of just plain basil; crushed red pepper flakes for spice; and a flavorful cheese like feta, bleu cheese, or even pepperjack. I am also very interested in trying this recipe with pasta instead of potatoes. Thanks for a wonderful recipe, Auntie Mags!
