  1. Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender (approx. 15 minutes). Cool completely and cut in halves or quarters.

  2. Mix all dressing ingredients in the bottom of a large bowl. Add remaining ingredients and toss well. (I slightly mash the potatoes while mixing to make it creamy).

  3. Refrigerate at least two hours before serving.
