“This is the most fantastic potato salad recipe I've ever found. My family rave about it (husband won't let me buy it anymore as says it's not a patch on this) and it always gets requested at bbqs and parties. I haven't altered it in any way as it's so wonderful as it is. I'd love to claim it as my own but it's not...I got the recipe from "An American Place" by Larry Forgione. It's a great book and with my love of American food I use it over and over. It's very important that the potatoes are still hot when they are tossed with the herbs and dressing inorder to absorb the other flavors and have a nice creamy texture.”
