Reviews for Red, White & Blue Potato Salad
"This is an interesting variation on potato salad. Everyone really liked it, especially the guys (it must be the bacon). I followed the recipe exactly except for two things: added some sugar( about 1 tsp) to the mustard vinaigrette as it was pretty "tart" and reduced the amount of dill (to 1 Tbsp). Some family members don't care for dill. Interestingly, they didn't seem to notice there was ANY dill in it. Unusual and tasty salad. Won't add sesame seeds next time--didn't really add to the flavor."
