i did everything the way she said to, only i used 3 lbs potatoes, only had 1 leek, so i used 3 celery stalks, used some jalapeno pickle relish, rice vinegar, added a couple tablespoons of mayo instead of olive oil, and i put a bunch of smoked paprika in my boiling water along with the salt oh and plenty of dried chives i used my food processor instead of my blender and it came out nice and chunky, which actually made it better imo if you like potato and leek, you should definitely try this one- pretty sure it would come out nicely if followed exactly and lower in fat hehe

I have made this recipe for parties and no one would ever believe the secret ingredient is leeks. It is a delicious and healthier potato salad.
