Herbed Potato Salad

Oh Martha. My potato salad did not look like Martha’s potato salad. It was OK, but was kind of bland. She said to keep it chunky, but the pieces were just too big for me so I mashed things up a little. I think maybe the potatoes I used were just too big. I used Veganaise for the first time in the recipe. It was good! It was no Duke’s Mayonnaise, but it was good. Martha let me down on this one. I will keep looking for the perfect potato salad.
