Here's an easy-to-make potato salad that features a fresh, zippy tarragon dressing instead of the traditional mayonnaise. This is one of my husband's favorite recipes. I like to bring along a large bowlful for picnics, potlucks and backyard barbecues.—Cheryl Ruhr, Brookfield, Missouri

"Delicious, and a hit at a dinner party among people who expected a mayonnaise-based salad when I said "potato salad"! I let it sit for several hours after adding the dressing, and I think the longer you can let it soak into the potatoes, the better."
