Every time I make this my guest begin the meal with who is getting the leftovers. My best friends' husband doesn't care for Potato Salad but when I brought this one it quickly became his favorite and he asks for it each time we get together. The time it takes to make this is well worth it.

I have been looking for a great potato salad with awesome flavor and I think this one is it. I used fat free sour cream and turkey bacon to lighten it a bit and it still was wonderful. Great recipe!
