This creamy and colorful potato salad is always requested for all our summer picnics. It's so quick to prepare, goes with almost anything and is really yummy while still warm—but just as delicious when chilled! —Karen White, Lawrenceburg, Tennessee

"Flavor is fine; it's a little salty. Biggest change I would make is either halve the amount of potatoes or double the amount of everything else. I mixed the everything else first, then looked at the amount of potatoes that came out of the pot compared to the volume of the sauce, and only added half the potatoes. I weighed the potatoes, so I know I wasn't off on that. Possibly the volume difference I experienced was due to me cubing the potatoes (~1cm) rather than wedging them.

Only ingredient change I made was to use plain yogurt instead of mayonnaise. Turned out fine."

"This was excellent -- great flavor and very, very easy! This is going to be my go-to potato salad recipe from now on. I cubed the potatoes rather than cutting in wedges; we just like them better that way."
