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
