Replied to Potato Salad Recipe : Ina Garten : Food Network

I'm forced to wonder if this review--and the one below--are just trolls. That being said, I understand how 20-somethings and some folks would balk at this recipe. It is a recipe for a more "experienced" palate, especially if you've been eating fast food or supermarket potato salad all your life.

I'm awarding this recipe 2 stars instead of 1 to give Paula the benefit of the doubt. I had to make the cakes twice.

People, people, people.....a cosmopolitan IS a martini. It's supposed to be strong. If it weren't for the juices, it would be even stronger! Enjoy it and if you find it too strong, cut the vodka in half and double both the pomegranate and cranberry juices...you'll find it lighter!

A fantastic drink and a "proper" martini--hence the strength. I do have a suggestion for those unaccustomed to--or not interested in--a drink this strong.
