"This recipe was so good that my husbands work was talking about it the day back after our St. Patty's Day cookout! It is refreshing with a bit of tang and sweetness! I don't normally like potato salad but this was delish...the hostess's husband kept the left overs and sent home the empty bowl...I did double the recipe, left out the radishes and slow cooked the corned beef on high for 4 hrs with spices it came with...Hope this is helpful!"
