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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
