Not your regular mayonnaise dressing, this has a bit of a kick to it! Excellent with steak, and a NICE change from the usual "baked potato" offerings!

Excellent. I did decrease the amount of mustard and used a salsa ranch dressing. The dressing is just perfect.

This has to be one of the easiest potato salads that I've ever made, yet it's super zesty and tasty! I used reduced-fat mayo, reduced-fat sour cream and the tarragon vinegar. Not the same old same old. I'll be making thjis again. Thanx for posting.

Another 'keeper' Deb. You know how much I love potatoes and this was excellent! Used Hellman's mayo, Kraft Ranch Dressing, and cider vinegar for dressing. Into my favorite zaar potato recipe binder it goes. Served it with Marinated Flank Steak. Great combination.
