Great dressing but it only made enough for 3 large potatoes with 2 boiled eggs. (At first it seemed I had a little extra dressing left over but the potatoes soon absorbed the dressing I mixed with them so I added in the "extra" dressing so the potato salad would be creamy. You might want to double the recipe if you're making a large batch of potato salad. Read More

I thought I was doomed to making mediocre potato salad for the rest of my life until I found this recipe! I added salt poultry seasoning black pepper cayenne pepper and celery seed to the base dressing; and chopped eggs celery and onions to the potatoes. Read More

I made this for a get-together and everyone said they loved it. I even had some people that said they didn't really like potato salad, but they really liked mine. This amount makes a generous batch of dressing. I doubled it and used 3/4 or more of a 5 lb bag of redskin potatoes and it was more than enough (my hubby would have preferred a tad less dressing). Overall an A+. Read More

I thought this was very easy and quite tasty I did find it worked better by putting the dressing on just before you serve it because it gets quite thick the longer it is in the fridge I used dijon mustard because I was out of regular mustard I am anxious to try it with regular mustard!! I also added eggs celery and pickles thanx for sharing!!!!!! Read More

The dressing was yummy. It reminded me of something my mom used to throw together when we were out of salad dressing. The potato sald tasted fine right after mixing it all together but the next day was another story. My usual potato salad tastes better the longer it sits. If anything this got worse. The leftovers the next day almost tasted like there was NO dressing on them at all. Read More
