Potato salad is such a ubiquitous summer dish. This recipe really brightens things up and breathes new life into potato salad. Its beautiful yellow color comes from our popular Madras South Indian Curry. The curry gives the salad incredible flavor alongside mustard, black pepper, cumin, and turmeric. Madras is a classic curry that will taste familiar and go great with the beloved potato. Fresh peas and crunchy bell peppers give the salad great texture. We used small Yukon potatoes so no peeling and little chopping is involved. This dish comes together with ease. Our dressing is kept light using half Greek yogurt for tang, rather than just straight mayo. Try making this for a lovely twist on a picnic classic or make it the star of a lettuce wrap!
