Yum Yum Yum not your ordinary potato salad...this was one of the best flavor combinations I have tried...I did 1 tsp regular and 1 tsp of the madras curry powder just to tame the heat a little for the non spicy lovers in the family however you could easily do 2 tsp of either I served it with the Tequila-Glazed Grilled Chicken Thighs from the same issue and the pairing was fantastic....will keep this in the rotation for those hot summer nights and is not heavy tasting either
Curried Potato Salad

This is a new twist to potato salad, BUT I would skip the hot sauce (I used only a few dashes of tobasco sauce, not 1 1/2 teas as the receipe stated) Madras Curry powder should have enough "kick" by itself, you can always add tobasco sauce later. I also doubled the celery & carrots and added some frozen peas to add more texture/flavor beyond the potatoes. It was great with burgers.

We felt like it needed a little more sweetness to balance the spicy flavors.

I actually found this rather bland. I am normally fond of curry (and I love curry chicken salad) but had to add a fair amount of salt to bring out the other flavors. I did omit the hot sauce as there was enough "spicy" in the chicken wraps we ate this with (same CL issue), but I don't imagine this would have added the right flavor. My husband does not care for mayonnaise-based salads, so I thought this might appeal to him as it is yogurt-based, but I am finding that I will have to eat most of this myself. I probably would not make this again.

Excellent change-up. Made to recipe with a combo of small red, white, and purple potatoes and used Sriracha for the hot sauce. Served with CL's grilled burgers with peanut sauce. Very good summer meal.

This was disappointing. My wife did not like this all and i was surprised that a recipe with curry and tabasco sauce could taste this bland. It had no flavor.

I found it bland, though spicy, and have a couple of suggestions: easier on the tabasco or mix part Madras curry with a milder curry, more salt or use dry roasted, salted cashews instead of the raw. Good flavor - just needed a bit more depth.

I made this for a Memorial Day barbecue, and everyone loved it. My husband, who doesn't like potato salad, said it was good.

I thought it was great. I did double the yogurt mixture and add a bit of buttermilk to make it more creamy. Otherwise it had a great taste. Will make again.
