Amanda's Delicious Cilantro Potato Salad

Amanda's Delicious Cilantro Potato Salad created by HeatherFeather

My neighbor served this at a baby shower and everyone wanted a copy of the recipe. This was addictive and had a unique, fresh taste. Don't leave out the bacon at the end..it is an essential ingredient, as is the chopped cilantro and lime juice.

    Delicious! I love cilantro and will increase the amount next time. I also omitted the chiles and bacon. Still wonderful and more to my liking. Will try bacon next time! thanks!

    So tasty! I would give this recipe more than five stars if I could. I love that it is so different from the classic potato salad. I used jalapenos rather than green chilies to make it a bit spicier, and it worked out very well. I agree that the bacon is a definite must, and I will probably add another couple pieces more next time. Thanks for the delicious recipe!

    This potato salad is an intriquing twist on an old favorite. The cilantro, lime juice and green chilis give it a fresh taste. I doubled the green chilis to give it an even brighter flavor. I served the salad at a beach lunch. It received thumbs up from everyone. Made for My3Chefs 2007. Thanks for posting!

    WOW!!! This recipe is a keeper at my house. We had guests over and served it along side a deep fried cajun turkey and it was delish!! The lime juice and cilantro and such great additions and add such a great flavor once all ingredients were combines. Thank!!
