  • “This was yummy! First time making potato salad. I also added celery pickle juice and pickles no sour cream because I did not have any, turned out wonderfully though.”

  • “This is really good!! I did scale the recipe down. I haven’t had sour cream in potato salad before.I madeit as directed, except I added 2 teaspoons pickle juice to slightly thin the mayo and sour cream, making it easier to stir everything together Plus it enhanced the flavor of the potato salad.I also added about 1/2 teaspoon of your Recipe #327624 in it, giving it a little bit of a kick. Thanks for sharing yourrecipe Laurielie. Made for PAC Fall ’08”

  • “Creamy and eggy would be the words to describe this potato salad.The flavor was good, but we weren’t crazy about the texture.I like a more solid potato salad.If I made this again I would cut way back on the amount of eggs, sour cream and mayonnaise.”

  • “I also made this for a family get together on the 4th of July.It was almost all gone!I added extra pickle and some pickle juice and a few stalks of celery for some added crunch.Fabulous, thank you!!I think I will add shredded cheese like Perkygirl next time.Yum!”

  • “I made this for the fouth of July and everyons loved it. Wow what a easy and delish salad. I added about a handful of shredded cheese and stirred it in than I put a little bit on the top, I used sharp cheddar it was yummy. Thank you Amber”

  • “Simple to make, but really creamy and tasty.I especially loved the dill pickles…… I actually think I’ll add more next time. Thanx for a great, easy potato salad!:)”

  • “When they say “for a crowd” they are not kidding! This makes A TON of potato salad and I was glad becuae it was yummy! I lightened the calories a bit my using low fat mayo and sour cream. Also, after boiling the eggs, I seperated the yolks and only added 6- I added the whites from 4 more eggs to make up for the difference in quantity. I also added 6 stalks of celery for a little crunch and a little pickle juice to make up for any lack of flavor caused by the low fat ingredients.”

  • “This is a very creamy tasty potato salad.Also very quick to put together. I followed the ingredients exactly.Made for 1,2,3 Hit Wonders 07”
