Rave-Review Potato Salad Recipe

My husband really flipped over this deliciously different potato salad the first time he tasted it. An oil and vinegar marinade gives the potatoes a wonderful flavor boost. This recipe is one of my most-requested. -Dorothy Bateman, Carver, Massachusetts

"My preference would be leaving the vinegar and green pepper out, Otherwise this was an awesome potato salad. The chives give it a nice flavor."
