"Yet another stellar recipe I recently received in my AARP Newsletter. While I am esp fond of the ingredients in this salad w/a strong Scandinavian flavor profile & look forward to trying it, I feel I should comment on the prep. If you're reading this, then you already know how to cook potatoes until they are "barely tender" & you prob don't need a steamer to do it. That said, I am leaving that choice of method in your capable hands. (Time does not include the time for the potatoes to cool) ENJOY!"
