Healthy-ish Potato Salad

A healthyish potato salad, you ask? Here comes an easy peasy potato salad with a crunch and a creamy texture. It is the best of both worlds, right? The crunch comes from the healthy carrot bits and the creaminess is from the buttermilk sour cream dressing. And of course, since I like everything spicy, there is that hint of spice from the crushed black pepper and paprika. It’s not too spicy- it’s just about right without overpowering the senses. Try it and you won’t regret it! @sarchakra
