Creamy Basil Potato Salad

I found a delicious recipe in Food & Wine magazine for Creamy Cucumber and Grilled Potato Salad. I decided to try my own version using the same dressing, but adding basil and broccoli instead of cucumber. I also decided to boil my potatoes instead of grilling them for greater ease. I am not a huge fan of traditional potato salad- typically too heavy and bland for me. I loved this recipe because the dressing is light and adding extra veggies and fresh herbs like basil, increases the health factor and boosts fresh flavor. Baby red potatoes work best for the recipe. Cutting them in disk shapes makes for a more modern take of this picnic staple. I recommend boiling your potato rounds al dente, creating better texture and bite. This salad is perfect for bringing to a backyard BBQ,  or summer picnic! Enjoy :)
