Cilantro Potato Salad

How many of us are stuck using the same ol' recipes, because we know that they're good?? Guilty. Well step out of the box people and try some of this glorious goodness! Being from Idaho, I love potatoes. Tony calls me Mrs. Potato Head. (Like he can talk, he's Mr. Potato Head) I think it would be wrong for me not to love potatoes-disrespectful to my state, maybe? Well anyways, potato salad is one of those dishes that I never even consider trying a new recipe for. The one I use is an old family favorite, and its delicious. But potato salad with cilantro?! Yes! The flavor of this salad is A-MAZING. A perfect and tangy twist on the classic potato salad. So next time you're going on a picnic, or family party, or anything-remember what I said before. Step out of the box! Try something new and unusual, you won't be disappointed!
