This recipe is simple, delicious, and full of bright flavors. Best of all it contains no mayo, so it is perfect for all day picnics! UPDATE: Thanks to magpie diner for pointing out that the potato proportions were way off. I've updated to point out that this recipe is for 5 lbs of potatoes. Thanks and enjoy!
