UPDATE: I THINK I KNOW WHY MY FIRST ATTEMPT WAS BLAND AND DRY. TEQUILLA DOES NOT SPECIFY WHAT SIZE OF POTATOES TO USE. HAD I GIVEN IT SOME THOUGHT (AND A GOOD DOSE OF COMMON SENSE HAHA), I WOULD HAVE REALIZED THAT SINCE MY POTATOES WERE QUITE LARGE, I'D NEED TO AT LEAST DOUBLE THE SAUCE TO COMPENSATE. THIS TIME AROUND, I WAS SURE TO USE SMALLER POTATOES AND ADD A GOOD DOES OF S&P TO FINISH - PERFECT! THE KEY IS ENSURE THAT YOUR POTATOES ARE EVENLY COVERED (NO NEED TO DROWN THEM BUT FEEL FREE TO DOUBLE THE SAUCE IF NEED BE) AND SEASON TO TASTE BEFORE SERVING. THIS IS NOW A WINNER IN MY BOOK! Not bad. I've had better, but then again I didn't expect this to be as good as my local German restaurant's potato salad. Both my hubs and I found this to be good but a tad bland. After sneaking just one bite, I knew I needed to s&p to taste. I added a GENEROUS dose of both and still felt something was missing. I then added another 1/4 t of celery seed and a T more vinegar (my potatoes seemed a bit dry without it). I even let the flavors blend for a half hour while my hubs grilled our brats. Still bland. :( Ironically enough, my neighbor liked this better lukewarm (I gave her half of what was left), so I'm hoping I will too. Thanks anyways, Tequilla! :-)
