Irish Style Potato Salad

Irish Style Potato Salad

Ready in 1 hour

The Irish make a warm, traditional dish with potatoes and cabbage called Colcannon, which is tasty enough in its own right, but on hot summer picnics this chilled version provides a delightful combination of cool and creamy with crunch!

"Love this recipe. It is easy to make and if you let it sit in the fridge for a couple hrs its even better."
