I have been eating, and making, this type of potato salad since I met my husband 44 years ago. The only difference is we add some dill pickle juice to the mayonnaise mixture before adding it to the potatoes, eggs and green onions. My mother-in-law always used 5 pounds of red potatoes, one dozen eggs and close to two bunches of green onions (green parts only). The mayo-mustard, salt and pepper were never measured. I followed your recipe using 5 pounds of potato but added a lot more mustard than listed (I USED TWO TABLESPOONS, AS WE LIKE IT TO HAVE SOME ZIP). IT WAS FANTASTIC! I CAN NOW DUPLICATE THE TASTE EVERY TIME. Read More

OMG! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!! I made this for my daughter's graduation party - what a hit!!!! I got so many compliments! My hubby & father-in-law both said "it's better than grandma's"! I also added a little celery for a crunch & extra color...green onions are a must (added about 5-6, mostly the green ends)!! I didn't quite measure all the salt/pepper, also added a smidge more mustard because it seemed really mayo-ey when I tried the sauce. **to anyone who has a hard time cooking potatoes perfectly (I always made them too mushy), a trick my mother-in-law taught me is to boil them with the skins on just until a fork can penetrate without too much force, then put them in the fridge for a bit to cool, peel and dice. I am tossing any other potato salad recipes I have as I will use this one ALL the time. ;o] Read More

Even as a mustard style potato salad preferrer I rate this mayo style pot. Salad an A. I made this for a serving of 3. I just adjusted the serving size on the recipe & cooked potatoes only for 12 min vs 20. It turned out delicious! Read More

made exactly how the recipe says. I made it for a camping trip with a bunch of people and it was a hit. Everyone asking for the recipe. Now I still make it for my family and it will still be gone within a few days. My husband likes to take it for his lunch as the main course. LOL. But every since I made this recipe I cannot stand store bought potato salad. I have tried several different kinds and it always gets thrown away. Read More

Nice basic recipe I added twice the mustard and it could have used more in the dressing. I also ended up adding some apple cider vinegar as it needed more zip. I added the green onion and celery chopped fine. My mom always added sweet pickle relish and I added that to this. Needs a bit more adjustment but it is a good starting point. Read More
