I just finished making this, and took a couple of bites prior to chilling, but have to say the flavor is delicious already. I'm not a spicy food guy but just so everyone knows, the chili powder isn't going to harm anyone. It's just barely there. I used Smoked Spanish Style Paprika for my salad after reading other reviews, and it added a lot of flavor, in a good way. Great recipe! Everyone need to try it with the roasted potatoes. The roasting really makes this salad unique!

We took some of the elements of this potato salad and incorporated them into ours. We did this because we don't care for sweet pickle relish or celery in ours. But we did try using the cayenne pepper and rather than plain paprika we used smoked paprika. We also used green onions in place of sweet onions and plain yellow mustard instead of Dijon. We also boiled the potatoes. The addition of the cayenne and smoked paprika gave it a kick that we really like. It was not too spicy because even my granddaughter enjoyed it.

Great potato salad I also boiled my potatoes it was delicious. I enjoyed the slight amount of heat. Psalm 127-3 who cares!

Good. Other than grilling the potatoes, it was pretty easy to make and quick. I doubled the cayenne and it wasn't too spicy.

I love this recipe--it's tried and true--I've used it for years using both roasted spuds or traditionally boiled w/skins on then peeled. I like that it can be cut by 1/2 too. I divide it and leave out the Cayenne on a portion for those like myself who react to hot peppery condiments. We regularly add chopped Sweet Onion (white, vidalia, spring onions, even purple but not yellow) directly to the potato mix rather than into the dressing (1/2 - 3/4 cup or to your liking). Also looking forward to trying it with Smoked Paprika for another layer of flavor--once I figure out where to buy it. Tip: I always save my left-over pickle juices, especially the sweet or bread n butter variety for use in dressings, meats, omlettes, etc. It can be used even if you don't have the actual relish on hand.Psalm 127-3: You must be a troll because I notice your comments are usually rude as well as unwarranted. I don't buy your phony Bible verse moniker either...

This potato salad is zingy and has a great kick! The idea of using roasted potatoes really brings out a smokiness. I enjoyed it thank you! Psalm 127-3: your review is neither helpful or makes sense.

today is July 4tth-happy 4th of July!of course potato salad is a staple at a holiday such as this where bbq's are on overload and everyone has had their meal planned for a while. about 6 weeks ago I made a potato salad from TOH website. had some catchy name made me want to make it regardless of my husband saying please just make your regular potato salad. it was a weird recipe but heck I'm game, like you blended the cooked eggs with rest of sauce. long story short I won't make this one either bcz this one is nothing like mine. who puts cayenne and paprika in their potato salad, I know I don't.today for holiday I did make my potato salad. my husband had a smile on is face, it is simple but it's what we like and expect.
