    appleydapply's Note:

    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

      It was delicious. I used baby new potatoes instead. made the salad in the morning and eat it at night. Very flavour full. Everybody loved it.

      Was good; just not spicy enough for my taste. Would recommend chili, cumin, garlic and a touch of hot sauce to the vinaigrette for that extra punch (from a very similar recipe). Try corn and sliced black olives also for a variation. Since I'm from Texas I like really spicy food so the extra spices should be to taste.
