“This recipe is adapted from the Barefoot Contessa cookbook. It is WONDERFUL! The fresh herbs are essential--don't even try to make it with dried. It is also important to use a good flavored olive oil. Whenever we make this, it gets rave reviews. My husband could eat it daily for a week. Easy to double or triple for a crowd! Something different from your typical mayo based potato salad!”
