    Delicate and really good, all the flavors are nice together. After reading another review I decided to use Meyer lemon instead of orange, since it is a cross. It paired wonderfully. I also used less mustard (personal preference). Next time I will add more capers and some cucumber for crunch.

    I'm sorry, but this just didn't do it for me. I don't know why. It sounded so good. Maybe I didn't cook the potatoes quite long enough; I'm not sure. But the potato flavor was too strong and the other flavors didn't blend together well. It felt like it was needing something else - another spice maybe. I'm not sure. Thanks for posting though.

    We really liked this. We would have *loved* it with one change - lemon juice instead of the OJ. I used fresh squeezed and it was just an unexpected taste with the potatoes. It also turned the potatoes orange after chilling. I think this recipe would be 5 stars for my family if I made it again substituting lemons.

    all of my favorite ingredients together to create a masterpiece of wonderful flavors, since my DS is not a lover of capers and smoked salmon I had the pleasure of eating this all myself and let me tell you I enjoyed every bite, this is so good and benefits even more with chilling time, thank you for sharing BakinB!

    I tagged this in 123 Hit Wonders with such enthusiasm as I love potato salad and I love smoked salmon but every time I was thinking of making it I wondered - I realise now quite needlessly - about the salmon "going with" whatever meat dish I was planning, so then I found what seemed like a perfect solution: we enjoyed this with Recipe #155183 and salad greens. Delicious. I've often added ham or bacon to potato salads but the smoked salmon is just that bit more special and we loved the orange, dill and capers in this. I'm going to be making this for delicious take-to-work lunches. And having now eaten this salad, I'd be happy to eat it with various kebabs dishes or as part of a Mediterranean style vegetarian meal with dips and olives and other salads. Thanks for sharing a really lovely - and charmingly different- recipe, BakinBaby.
