    From Tyler Florence's cookbook, Tyler's Ultimate. He claims this is the best potato salad he's ever made. I made half the amount of dressing indicated and still had plenty.

      I found this recipe on Food Network, and it is really good. I didn't even have any capers, but it still turned out delicious. I estimated what 2 pounds of potatoes might be and probably had more like 3 pounds, and it was still quite well dressed. I added an extra egg and chopped them (I didn't grate them). The only difference in the recipe online is it calls for seasoning with salt and pepper, but not a specific amount--it says to remember the capers and pickle juice are already salty. It also says to drizzle with olive oil. This is heavenly!

      Very good and creamy potato salad. Although I did omit the pickles because we do not care for them. It still tasted very good. Even my picky husband who has made it very clear that he does not like potato salad, asked for seconds!

      Made this and halved dressing - found it was more than enough. It did soak into the ingredients overnight. Would def make again. Moorish.
