    This is a delicious recipe that can be used as a main dish as well as a side dish. I thought I was the only one who added horseradish sauce to pasta/potato salads. Gives them a little zip. I added some finely chopped red bell peppers for color, and used thinly sliced green onions.

    Use green onion, then add a little raw white sweet corn, some chunks of avocado, and some halved cherrie tomatoes. It brings this salad to a whole new level...

    Delicious!!! Since I am a WW I lightened it up with lite sour cream and lite mayo. I figured only 6 pts a serving so makes an awesome lunch.
