    Very tasty and flavorful. This side dish was very fresh tasting. I served it with the grilled pork tendorloin with blackberry sauce in this same issue.

    I made this last night with another cooking light recipe (honey and molasses glazed chicken drumsticks.) This salad was delicious. I had so many herbs in my refrigerator that I wanted to use. The grilled squash was excellent. The dressing is very light but not bland if you use all the recommended fresh herbs. I did add some sauteed garlic to the salad. It is a GREAT summer potato salad and MUCH healthier than any other.

    I really liked this lighter potato salad. Someone had given me fresh potatoes and squash from his garden, and most of the herbs called for were growing in pots on the porch, so this was the perfect recipe for me! I only made a few minor changes. I was a little short on some herbs, so I added some dried herbs in addition to the fresh. Instead of cooking spray, I tossed the squash with a little olive oil before grilling. And I added some chopped shallots since I was using them in another dish, too. Will definitely make this again!

    We loved this recipe. I used the capers and thought they really added a nice saltiness. My 20 month old loved it as well. We ate it today for lunch and it was even better!

    I found this to be very bland, even after adding more than the recommended amount of herbs. I would not make this again.

    This is not very exciting. It's not terrible, but I won't make it again.

    I used fresh herbs from the farmers' market and new potatoes from the market, as well as baby squash, and after it sat overnight this was even better! I just added extra dill, since I didn't ahve conrnichons or capers...

    One of the best freshest, and great tasting potato salad I have ever made! It's a keeper!

    Don't bother if you dont have all the fresh herbs. I had fresh basil and parsley, but used dried chives and taragon and the salad turned out pretty bland.

    I loved this recipe, but I did change it considerably for our tastes. The squash at the store looked horrible, so I just nixed it from the recipe, only used fresh parsley & tarragon, added 1 minced elephant garlic, subbed out the cornichons for 1 tbsp of mustard seeds, added 2-3 tbsp of cider vinegar and ~1/4 cup of olive oil mayo in lieu of the olive oil. Omitted the lemon rind, but did put a small amount of juice in to help brighten flavors. All-in-all, this was an amazing potato salad after my changes, and I wouldn't hesitate to make again and again. Without the vinegar, I would imagine this one to be pretty bland, so if you make as is, taste as you go. Enjoy!
