  • “This was absolutely wonderful!I made it in Florida at my brothers house with bbq chicken!My hubby and brother aren’t crazy about potato salad and they each had 2 servings!GREAT dish!”

  • “Mom would be proud! Very good and looks good, too!Thank you for posting this old fashion style recipe! We all need a little help from our past tokeep family Flavors alive!!!Sharon Jean”

  • “Really good potato salad, I used a red onion and honey mustard. Thanks for posting. =)”

  • ” This potato salad has become my family’s favorite! The flavor is fantastic. This potato salad earns an A+ . I always thought my own recipe could not be beat, but this one surpasses it.”

  • “Really good potato salad. I added a little extra mustard and used no-fat mayo and it came out great. Thanks for the recipe!”

  • “This is really yummy.I only used 1 cup of mayonnaise, and I used a low fat mayonnasie.Otherwise the salad would be too heavy and lots of fat.Yum!”

  • “Great recipe thanks”

  • “Such a yummy recipe! My family and guests loved it and I will definitely make it again! Thanks so much for sharing Granny’s secret!!!”

  • “Very good! Used my homemade chopped pickles for a little more seasoned taste than store bought!”

  • “This is the BEST potato salad I have ever eaten!!I have tried so many recipes for potato salad and they just were not quite what I was looking for.My husband loves this potato salad and I make it often.Thanks for such a wonderful recipe!”

  • “I have had the recipe for years and have never rated it.I got it out to make for my husbands birthday bbq and just wanted to say it is the best!This is how my grandmother always made her’s and we love it!!I add dill relish (2 T) because we like pickle in our potato salad, but other than that, I use the recipe just as written.love love love”

  • “I just finished making this.I must always taste test and can I just say WOW!!!!This is by far the most fantastic potato salad recipe ever! Better than my grandmother’s and that is saying something.I’m not sure it will make it to dinner.I made it exactly as written, omitting the celery as I have none today and the flavor is just plain YUM.I am certainly a novice at this and used baking potatoes.Not a good idea.Next time, and there will be a next time, I will use a different potato.I just hope my family likes it as much as I do.Thank you for sharing this gem of a recipe!”

  • “Yummy!I made this exactly as written.I love mustard and eggs in my potato salad.This is one of those good old classic potato salads that everyone loves. I garnished with extra hard boiled egg slices.Thanx for sharing.”

  • “Excellent potato salad very similar to old recipe I have. Made yours as directed with a little less mustard, personal preference, and served it with recipe #113037 and cole slaw. I boiled the potatoes in their skins, cooled slightly, then cubed while still warm, and hard boiled the eggs using recipe #24799 for the method. The only difference in my recipe is the addition of 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish but I didn’t miss it in this version. This will be a great side dish for barbecue chicken, burgers, hot dogs or anything else on the barbecue.”

  • “This was great.Even my mom commented that it was good and she is quite the critic.I left the egg out of hers because of allergies and I left the pickles out of it all because we arent a fan of pickles.It was excellent, I followed the recipe to a tee other than the pickles.Definately make this again this summer.We always have left over potatoes to use up.Thanks for a great recipe.”

  • “This was wonderful! I added an egg and used sea salt and did not use as much vinegar (personal preference). This was my very first try at potato salad and it was a huge hit at my cookout! I am making it again tonight!”

  • “I made this today for a BBQand it was a hit. Thanks for sharing! I did, however, tweak it a bit by adding 1/2 tsp of pepper and garlic powder, one more egg(I like eggs,) and 1/4 cup of cream. You can’t go wrong with this recipe. It’s a keeper!”

  • “I really liked the outcome of this potato salad.I accidentally added too much salt, so I added more of everything else until the taste mellowed a bit.I also omitted the sugar, as I used Miracle Whip instead of Mayonnaise, and used Apple Cider Vinegar.My potatoes didn’t dice well (I think I boiled them just a few minutes too many), so I coarsely chopped them up and mixed everything together.The taste is great the next day!”

  • “This recipe will be added to my “Best of Zaar so far” cookbook. Outstanding!KCShell”
