Outstanding! This was delicious, it had the right amount of spices in it to make it child friendly and adults also enjoyed it. I had to substitute the chives to spring onions and it was wonderful. There was no leftovers! Thank you for sharing Enjolinfam

This salad was okay, but I found was kind of lacking in flavour or perhaps just needed a little bit of sweetness or more tang. It looked great with the shreds of carrot, green chives and yellow base from the tumeric. I used fat free sour cream and light miracle whip. Definitely a different potato salad than what I am used to. Thanks! Reviewed during ZWT 4.
