Cajun Potato Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
I have been making this mouthwatering potato salad for about 10 years. My family likes spicy foods, and thanks to a son living in New Orleans, we have a constant supply of Cajun sausage for this recipe. Made with extra sausage, it's a filling one-dish meal.—Margaret Scott, Murfreesboro, Tennessee

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 30, 2014

This is a great potato salad for those that like it hot---in more ways than one! Unfortunately, I don't make it very often (or very "hot") anymore...age/time have given me the gift of acid reflux, so I have to tame it down. It still tastes good, but I miss the original flavor.

Love this recipe! Have made numerous times and everyone asks for the recipe. I have made both with smoked kielbasa and spicy andouille (cut down on cayenne!) Yum!

My husband is not a fan of vinegar but he could not quit eating this recipe. He thought it was wonderful.
