Did someone say hot, hot, hot? Nah, just the right amount of heat if you take out the seeds and white pith from the jalapeno. I only used 1/2 pepper as I was afraid to add more, and I went easy on the cayenne. We had it with our Fried Chicken, and the whole family gave it a flying 5 stars!

Definitely worth all five stars! This is a great dish and my family loved it. We thought it was even better the next day so it'd be a great make-ahead dish for company. My only advice is to use the fresh herbs or I think it might be bland or very hard to get the same flavor. Either way, try it.

I REALLY REALLY loved this! I thought it might turn out to have tone of those ordinary-seen-one-seen-them-all flavors one forgets about in a week. And I admit when I tasted it right after preparing, it had a "bit of a nip" when I was hoping for something more "in your face" (I like spicy!). But after sitting overnight it did come up with a pleasant bite that could not be ignored. And I will say this is the type of flavor that "grows" on you (by about one ounce with each passing of the refrigerator! I was lucky I had any left today!) so that even if you might feel timid about a spicy tater salad, by the time the bottom of the bowl is reached (and it will get there and not in the trash), anyone who tasted will be a true believer. I know I am!!!Thank you Derf and get well soon!

Really liked this one! Took it to a block party. I thought it might be too spicy for my fellow Iowegans (haha), but everyone seemed to like it. DH and I really liked the kick!

I love this red potato salad! The addition of the jalapeño pepper is just the perfect touch! I did use regular mayo instead of low fat and did chop the hard boiled egg into the salad. Thanks so much, Derf! Wishing you a speedy recovery : )

I made this for my Mum's b-day yesterday and my family devoured it. I tripled the recipe and they can't wait until I make it again! Thanks for the great recipe!

Another enjoyable recipe from Derf - I had a cold supper and everyone commented on the potato salad The Jalapenos & cayenne give it just that extra punch

I love this recipe. The few things I changed is that I used 1/2 the amt. of jalapeno, used a lt. mayo instead of FF and added freeze dried shallots instead of hte chives (my store was out), I added a splash of dill weed and ground some four peppercorn blend with grey salt for seasoning. It's a fantastic recipe for us to start with as we tend to like things spicier and with a lot of herbs/aromatics. Good job, again!!
