The most delicious potato salad (even if you don't like potato salad)

One of my lesser qualities is how picky of an eater I am. That's not to say I don't venture out and try new things, however typically when I try them, I don't end up liking them.

The same cannot be said of this potato salad though.

Something about the concept of my mom's classic potato salad always threw me off growing up. I think it's the mayonnaise. I've never been a sauce or dressing person, and so the concept of potatoes lathered up in mayo - a condiment I've never been fond of - and served in a bowl doesn't quite sit right with me.

That's why when my mom came home from her first potluck of the season last week, and wouldn't stop talking about this goat cheese and arugula potato salad, I was skeptical.

Now, remember, I said I was always willing to try things. And try this potato salad I did. We had it three nights in a row.

The lemon dijon dressing pair seamlessly with the grilled potatoes. The goat cheese cuts the bitterness of the arugula, creating the most delicious concoction for you to serve up at your next family dinner, local barbecue, or picnic.

This is officially my new go-to dish when I need something quick and easy that I know will impress the crowd. I can guarantee you will be the most popular person at the party, and everyone will be begging you for the recipe. It's so easy it feels illegal.
