Well here it is, the potato salad I tweeted about a few weeks ago. I first tasted this dish when I was doing chicken thighs for the guys at work, and I really liked it. It's not the traditional creamy mustard potato salad and was a great change up to the normal potato salad. In fact there were several guys on duty that night that really don't like traditional potato salad and the loved this. So I decided to make it home for the family and they really enjoyed it, our little girl ate some of it but wasn't crazy about it because she's not into baked potatoes. I mean what 2 year old is?
