I'm always on the lookout for potato salad recipes that are a little different, and this one certainly is! I found the basic recipe in a vegetarian cookbook and made a few changes in it to suit our individual tastes. —Jody Steinke, Nekoosa, Wisconsin

"I had to add a little bit more mayonnaise to get this to the consistency that I liked. Otherwise, there is a great blend of flavors here!"

"Oh, also, I didn't add the oregano because I didn't think it would add anything special."

"I didn't like the vinegar and olive oil taste, couldn't make it homely until I added mayo and hard cooked eggs. Guess I'm just a triditional potato salad girl."

"This was a great recipe!! I was very generous with the cheese and I used yellow onions instead of red (what I had on hand), otherwise I pretty much followed exactly. I will definitely be making this again."
