Summer Tarragon Potato Salad Recipe

Summertime is upon us, and it’s time for bar-b-ques, holidays, and other social gatherings. With the weather heating up, it’s hard to keep a cream-based potato salad cool enough so that it doesn’t spoil. With this recipe, the use of champagne or white wine vinegar allows for easier transport, and it also offers peace of mind if you aren’t sure what the refrigeration situation will be when you arrive.

A day at the beach with a cooler in tow? This salad will be a perfect choice, all while getting a delicious recipe. Plus, it’s a lighter option than most potato salads so that you can eat it guilt-free!
