This was amazing. I made it for a party and everyone loved it and wanted the recipe!

I love trying out new potato salads and this one did not disappoint. Great combination of flavors!

I am from the south, so I added a tbsp of sugar. Mind you, I quadrupled the recipe as well. Also added a bit of yellow mustard. Tastes great hot. We will see how it goes after it chills.
