Great flavor and easy to make. My teenage kids didn't care for it though. They don't like sauces that have a lot of vinegar in them, and you can definitely taste the vinegar in this dish. All of the adults I served loved this potato salad and asked for seconds. Went great with chicken sandwiches.

This is exactly the recipe I was looking for! It was wonderful, everyone loved it. I had already boiled eggs for a regular potato salad (decided to make yours, instead - MUCH easier!) so I sliced them and added to the salad as well. Very good. Thank you for the recipe...
