Serbian-style Potato Salad

This has a perfect balance of flavors that have such a connection to foods, people, and experiences I recall growing up. With a focus on vinegar and the natural properties of the potatoes connecting all the elements of this recipe, it is a great alternative to those heavy, creamy traditional potato salads that seem to be most common.
