Reviews forCajun Potato Salad
"My family just didn't care for this meal"
"This is a great potato salad for those that like it hot---in more ways than one! Unfortunately, I don't make it very often (or very "hot") anymore...age/time have given me the gift of acid reflux, so I have to tame it down. It still tastes good, but I miss the original flavor."
"Love this recipe! Have made numerous times and everyone asks for the recipe. I have made both with smoked kielbasa and spicy andouille (cut down on cayenne!) Yum!"
"My husband is not a fan of vinegar but he could not quit eating this recipe. He thought it was wonderful."
