Pretty good potato salad. I like that it has other veggies and pickles, etc. so that every bite is a little different. The kick from the sriracha and horseradish is refreshingly different. Thanks for posting.
Very good! I made some changes to suit my tastes. One of the best Salat Olivia recipes I have tried. I used chicken instead of hot dogs and omitted the cilantro to suit my family's taste. A thumbs up from me!
