"I REMEMBER digging small red potatoes from the soft warm soil, then gently pushing the plants back into the ground and reminding them to keep on making more potatoes. The new potatoes we brought home were either creamed with peas or made into this fresh salad."

"I always loved the red potato salad from the deli counter at our local store and this recipe is SO close to it. The dressing was very tasty - the only changes I made were omitting the radishes and topping it with some fresh dill. Very good!"
