My mom always made “Greek” potato salad with hot potatoes. This dish is similar in that the hot potato brings out the flavors of the dressing. In my mom’s potato salad there was a lot of oil and raw onions, it’s very good, but very high in calories. This salad has a nice balance of flavors and keeps the calorie count much lower.
