Recipe by appleydapply

This is a yummy variation of Potato Salad With Lemon-Dill Vinaigrette, suggested in the same Lorna Sass cookbook. It is delicious warm, at room temperature, or cold. It doubles well if you are making for a larger group.

A fresh and delicious take on the potato salad. I loved the lime/cilantro flavour. Omitted the hot pepper as kids were dining as well. Will make again! Made for 'PRMR
