Excellent. Easy to make, not a "heavy" taste and looks pretty in the bowl. Guests raved about it at a BBQ and it's definately "waist friendly". Good for picnics as it has no mayo, and tastes good even when it's warm. One I will make again.
Light and Fresh Potato Salad
Category Finalist, Sides and Salads. "My husband doesn't like mayonnaise, so I created a potato salad with a vinaigrette. I experimented and realized how little oil I need. Add the dressing while the potatoes are still hot. It really helps the vinegar permeate the potatoes." —Elsie Gonto, Savannah, Georgia
