Entered for safe-keeping. From June 2012 Vegetarian Times. Shake things up with this different version of potato salad. Serve this warm main-dish potato salad on a bed of watercress or arugula, which will wilt slightly from the heat of the potatoes. Choose a small cantaloupe that smells sweet at the stem end for the sweetest cantaloupe.
