Red potatoes are a perfect choice in this salad because they keep their shape when sliced and they add color. Leftover meat or chicken may be added to this salad for a main dish.

Not really zesty as written, but once I added some fresh lemon juice, smoked paprika, and a generous amount of kosher salt, it was delicious! I'd definitely make it again - in fact I may make it tomorrow and throw in some garlic scapes from my CSA.

My husband complains that I never make potato salad -- well, I don't do mayo at all, EVER. So I decided to give a vinegar based one a try. It wasn't bad. Definitely could have used a little something extra, but all in all I liked it though the husband wasn't in love because "Potato salad is supposed to be creamy." We offered some potatoes and pepper bits to our 10.5 month old and she was a fan so clearly it's not all that "zesty" as the title claims.
