Green beans and dill pickles perk up this pretty potato salad, and the Italian-style dressing adds a refreshing tang. My Irish grandmother made it for family gatherings, even though I've changed a bit, Nanny always comes to mind when I dish it up. -Marguerite Novicke, Vineland, New Jersey

"These were very good! Nice and cheesy. I think they would go over very well at a barbecue and you could easily make several packets of you had a big crowd."

"What an awesome dish! My whole family loved it! The only things I did differently was make up 3 packets, because my aluminum foil was too narrow and also, we put in some water half way thru the cooking on the grill, so that they wouldn't burn. Easy clean up, too!"

"Another great recipe. Easy to make and delicious. As we do not have an outdoor grill, I made this in an 9X9 pan in a 400 F oven for about one hour."
