    This was a really nice change of pace from mayonaisse based potato salads. At first I didn't think there was enough dressing but it was the perfect amount, nicely seasoning the salad. The only change I made was in the cooking time of both potatoes. Very refreshing and goes great with grilled meats or seafood. Thank you Miss Annie for sharing the recipe.

    We used this recipe for a bridal shower...and it was wonderful. Beautiful and colorful, and the combination of flavors was great! We used a seedless cucumber. If you're going to make a large quantity, consider upping any spices.

    This was quite unusual but turned out very well. Instead of slicing the onion, I coarsely chopped it. My husband thought he might like it better without the corn so I may leave that out next time. The mustard-lime dressing was definitely to our liking. The salad was very colorful and went well with the rest of my menu. Thanks Miss Annie, for sharing your recipe. It is a good one to serve when you want something out of the ordinary.
