    We loved this. A great mix or sour sweet and I would not call the lettuce decorative it was what pulled the whole dish together. Delicious!

    Pretty easy to make and it tastes good. The lettuce is purely decorative and no one will eat it, so you could omit that and still have a great side dish.

    A word of warning, though: once you top the lettuce with the potato mixture the salad doesn't keep well, so be prepared to eat it all that day.

    Very good when served at room temperature as well! This recipe is sure to become a favorite.

    I was a little hesitant about this recipe because I like my potato salad sweet, but this turned out to be a great dish and was liked by all that tried it. I did not have any table wine vinegar or I used 1/4c white distilled vinegar & 1/4c Moscato D'Asti & added Purple Onion to the lettuce/dressing mixture. Combination of sweetness w/ the potato turned out good.
