    This was one of the first recipes I ever tried from Taste of Home, and that was years ago. I loved it and still make it every summer. The dressing had a tangy quality that is refreshing and different. And to be honest, I actually prefer this recipe while the potatoes are still warm. Very yummy. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
