Wonderful stuff! I made this for today's office potluck, and it disappeared really quickly. Lucky I kept a small bowl aside for myself. I love the blend of flavors, and especially the note of tarragon. And normally I wouldn't touch potato salad, no matter who makes it. This is a keeper.
This potato salad is delicious! It is very more-ish with a slight anise flvor from the tarragon and a good homestyle flavor without too much dressing. It has a richness that makes you think there could be eggs in it, but no, not a single one! It's so simple, but so delicious! A definite keeper! Thanks, Evie*, for a great recipe!
