Welcome to my cookbook Cookerypoint - Ila's Kitchen. It is my 3rd day in Blogging Marathon. I want to do my favorite salad which is yummy and healthy. Yup Greek Potato Salad... I dono why the name is so but I hope this salad is from Greek. This is a stomach filling salad which could be prepared very easily. I am not sure about the replacement of other veggies because salad potatoes gives very unique taste and dressing gives unique flavour to the salad... lets go to our salad....
