This is a great alternative to mayo based potato salad. Like others, I could not find goat based fromage blanc, but I did find regular fromage blanc and used that. It makes a ton of sauce, so add that sparingly as you go. It's got a great goat's cheese flavor. We will make again for sure!

We also could not find the goat cheese, so I used feta cheese instead. Although not as creamy as it was supposed to be, the flavor of this salad was great. For anyone who is looking for a non-mayo potato salad, I would suggest this one.

The hardest part of this recipe was finding goat cheese fromage blanc! I searched over 5 different stores, including specialty stores, and came up empty-handed. I did learn that you can use cream cheese mixed with heavy cream as a substitute, and I was able to find goat cream cheese to make it even more authentic. The actual execution of the recipe was pretty simple, but it makes a lot so definitely half it if you are not feading a crowd. Between the goat cheese and the red wine vinegar and the tarragon, the flavors are strong and unique. This is not your everyday average potato salad, but I served it wonderfully with the Chipotle Sloppy Joe's, also from the April '09 issue, and I can also see it going great with plain old barbeque. It definitely is a dish that will impress with its uniqueness!

So easy, so yummy. My hubby hates mayo so this is a great sub for traditional potato salad.
