Top Review by Tisme

I made this as per the recipe.This was a lovely yet different potato salad to what we usually have, which we enjoyed very much. I thought I could hide the white Balsamic Vinegar in this salad but DD picked it up straight away, although she still enjoyed it. Next time I might use less basil as the basil tended to take over the flavour just a little. A wonderful salad to serve on a hot day. Thanks Cookgirl.
