Summer in a side dish! This is a Dave Lieberman recipe that I adore. You can serve this any time of the year, but I think it's best during the summer. If you're looking for a delicious and different potato salad, this is it! **Added note - You may not need to add the entire amt. of dressing..do it to taste. I found some other reviews and suggestions at the Food Network site. If you want to check there, just type in the name of this recipe in the search box. Happy eating! :-)

We really enjoyed this salad and it's wonderful to have another option for a non mayonnaise based potato salad. I followed the recipe except that after reading the reviews opted to add a tsp of honey to the dressing to cut the tartness and I used grape, cherry and a regular slicing tomato as they were all ripe and ready. Will definitely make this again as you don't need any other sides to a meal - it's all right here! Thanks for posting! Made for Culinary Quest 2014. .
