Lemon Vinaigrette Potato Salad Recipe

Publisher Photo
I developed this recipe for a friend who needed a potato salad that could withstand Fourth of July weather. The vinaigrette was a safe and delicious alternative to traditional mayonnaise-based potato salads. I've also substituted fresh thyme for the basil. Any fresh herbs would be great! —Melanie Cloyd, Mullica Hill, New Jersey

"By FAR the best potato salad I've ever had!"

MY REVIEW

"Made exactly as called for. Served warm, nothing to write home about; it tasted as if there was too much oil in the dressing. However, served cold, it was surprisingly good. Will probably make again and just serve it cold."
