Picnic Potato Squares Salad

I'M ALWAYS on the lookout for new and unique recipes. Firm and cut into squares, this potato salad looks different than the usual ones, and the dill pickle gives it a unique flavor. It also travels well and is pretty served on salad greens. -Susan Furrow, Canterbury, New Brunswick
