My grandma used to make this when I was a kid. It is delicious on potato salad instead of plain mayonnaise.

This was nice and creamy but it was too sweet for my taste. I would decrease the sugar to 1/4 cup and increase the mustard to 2 teaspoons. Read More

This is a nice alternative to mayonnaise-based potato salad. This tastes very similar to the dressing that my Father put over dandelion greens when I was a child. It's just a little too sweet for our taste so I will try 1/4 cup sugar next time but this is a good recipe. Read More

Much to sweet for us. We like more savory. Ate it, but didn't save the left overs. Will just add mustard to salad dressing in future. Read More
