                             Makes  8 to 10 servings

Chili powder and hot sauce add heat to this mayo-free potato salad recipe. If you can't take the heat leave the hot sauce off for a non-spicy version.

1/3               cup vegetable oil
1/4               cup white vinegar
1                  tablespoon sugar
1-1/2           teaspoons chili powder
1                  teaspoon seasoned salt
1/8               teaspoon hot sauce 
1                  (8-3/4-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1                  small carrot, shredded
1                  (2.5-ounce) can sliced ripe olives
4                  green onions, sliced 

Cook red potatoes in boiling water to cover 20 to 30 minutes or until tender. Drain and cool to touch. Cut potatoes into cubes; place in a large bowl.
Whisk together oil and next 5 ingredients; pour over potato, tossing gently. Cover and chill 1 hour.
Stir in corn and next 3 ingredients.
