Red, White & Blue Potato Salad

Tossing the cooked potatoes with stock and wine right after you drain them infuses them with flavor. The liquid absorbs like magic. —George Levinthal, Goleta, California

    This is an interesting variation on potato salad. Everyone really liked it, especially the guys (it must be the bacon). I followed the recipe exactly except for two things: added some sugar( about 1 tsp) to the mustard vinaigrette as it was pretty "tart" and reduced the amount of dill (to 1 Tbsp). Some family members don't care for dill. Interestingly, they didn't seem to notice there was ANY dill in it. Unusual and tasty salad. Won't add sesame seeds next time--didn't really add to the flavor.
