My mother used to make this on Easter to go with our ham and she used to make it for our get togethers whenever we were having a lot of company. We also like it at room temperature. Just do not leave it out any longer then you would regular potato salad. Served warm, it goes great with ham or fried chicken.

It was the BEST potato salad that I have ever made. I didn't mash the potatos completely I only "smashed" them. The instructions are correct when they say that it tastes great at room temperature. I refrigerated mine overnight intending to serve it cold like most potato salad. It did not have the same rich flavor that it did right after putting the ingredients together.

Pretty good--but I thought it was too mustard-y--my finished result look very green. I think next time I'll cut the mustard by half and up the mayo and sour cream.

Great recipe. I used all red potatoes and omitted the butter. Think I like this better than regular potato salad and it is much faster to prepare as you don't have to wait for the potatoes to chill.

I thought this was going to be something different and it ended up being very familiar. An easy and excellent potato salad I love mustard in mine and this was just great. Tasted just like my southern grandmother's.

You have to really love mustard to like this recipe. I used only 1/4 of what was called for and it was too much for my kids. Nice idea but not for everyone.

I used the dressing in this recipe to make potato salad. I couldn't mash the potatoes...just seemed odd to me. But the dressing was great!!! It was a nice variation to the way I usually make potato salad! Also I used Dijon Mustard and I didn't think the mustard overpowered anything at all.

VERY GOOD! Even anti-potato salad people would like this (ummm...my boyfriend!). We ALL enjoyed this recipe! I decreased the mustard to 1/4 cup and omitted the pickles. Very good! Very colorful! Very easy! Exciting change to your regular mashed potato routine! I now understand why it works well with any meal! Would make this again! Thanks Linda!
