Another potato salad to try this summer. Needs to be refrigerated before serving.

A marvelous change from your everyday potato salad, delicious! I only had yellow wax string beans, and new baby white potatoes, which made the colours kind of all the same so I added some cherry tomatos to top it off and add some colour. We loved the flavours of the dressing and the garlic set it all off perfectly! Thanks for posting, we will be having this often thoughout the summer, next time with green string beans and new red potatos.
