Creamy Lime Potato Salad Recipe

Creamy Lime Potato Salad Recipe

Not only is this change-of-pace salad good served cold, but it is absolutely fantastic when it's warmed a tad. The recipe came from my daughter, who likes to use lime juice and lime peel for a unique flair. -Angela Accorinti of Okeana, Ohio

"I would make this again because it's a nice change of pace. I would put maybe a 1/4 of the Thyme called for in next time though, as I'm not a big fan of that particular flavour."

"the taste from the limes is refreshing, but overall the salad is not memorable enough for me to make again"

"My family and I loved the light burst of flavor of this salad. A nice change from the heavy traditional potato salad with all mayonnaise. I added 1/3 c. of diced red onion and a little more salt which made it amazing. If you are one who eats the same ten meals over and over, this is probably not for you, but if you have a passion for food combinations and love to try new things, this is it."

"Eeewww....sorry, but lime & potato just don't go together according to my taste buds. Hubby hated it too and he'll eat just about anything I serve! I did however make a fresh batch, omitted lime & thyme, using dill, finely chopped vidallia onions, s&p and we enjoyed!"

"This is great. I used True Lime instead of lime juice and it turned out great."

"Pigletcat, did you try the recipe? I would like to know if it's good or are you just putting in a suggestion, having not tried it, which isn't really fair. Not trying to be negative, would just like a review from someone who has actually tried it."

"Would add some red or green pepper for a little color."
