"This is very tasty - even my 18 mo old grandson loved it - however, I did use the "dark" balsamic vinegar and YES it is an ugly color - bummer...."

"Savory and good with Ham but found it quite spicy - especially after it was refrigerated overnight."

"Tasty, yes - but under NO circumstances use a dark balsamic vinegar. Turned the whole salad a really unappetizing dark brown color. I call it "serve in the dark" potato salad. You hope nobody sees it."

"We really enjoyed this recipe! We had it alongside the honey glazed chicken kabobs from this issue and had a delicious meal. We will certainly make this again!"

"This salad is DELICIOUS! Even picky kids ate it. Had to sub "Klondike Rose" for Yukons and used "white balsamic" to keep the color fresh-looking. Thought it might be too zesty, but it has great flavor with a just enough zip!"
