This potato salad recipe was developed by Chef Robert Del Grande of Cafe Annie in Houston, Texas. It combines oregano, cumin, coriander, chiles and red wine vinegar to give this potato salad a big, bold Texan flavor that is the perfect compliment to any cookout spread.

It can be prepared ahead of party time a day or two and kept refrigerated until ready to serve. Or, prepare everything except for the onions ahead of time, toss it all together and keep it refrigerated. Then grill the onions while all of the other goodness is grilling during the cookout.
