Directions:

1. Boil potatoes in lightly salted water until tender. It is important not to overcook them or they will go mushy! Check tenderness by poking with a fork or tip of a sharp knife. Drain potatoes and rinse in cold water. Let them completely cool.

2. While potatoes are cooling, mix all dressing ingredients in a large bowl.
