I was inspired by a recipe I read somewhere in the far distant past to create this.

It's easy to make. A twist on an old favorite.

Yum! This is not your average potato salad recipe. It's light and tart. The optional Feta cheese (which I highly recommend using) adds a bit of creaminess to the potato salad. This potato salad recipe is great for picnics this summer because you won't have to worry about it spoiling. The Test Kitchen
