A Nice Change

This recipe is a nice change from your regular potato salad. The red pepper and green beans add texture and taste. I also included four boiled eggs and with the summer ahead, will definately be making this recipe again.

Great Twist on a Traditional Picnic Food

I was looking for a "different" salad to take to a picnic that would appeal to adults and children alike. This was a huge HIT with everyone. Extremely easy to prepare and enjoyed by everyone.

zesty potato salad

What a great change from the "egg, pickle relish" recipe! This dish is better the next day. I've already passed it on to other family members and friends.
