    I was not a fan of this potato salad. The vinaigrette was just too much for me. I will not be making this one again.

    Do you peel the potatoes or just cook them with the skin on?

    Question: are you supposed to drain the excess vinaigrette from the potatoes before they are added to the salad ingredients ?

    If I don't have the radishes I just add 1/2 cup finely chopped celery for crunch and keep going. We think this is the best potato salad recipe we have and I make it often.
