Possibly the tastiest potato salad ever. It's a family favorite! The dressing can be prepared in advance and left in fridge overnight if desired. Potatoes can be peeled or unpeeled depending on your preference.

I have tried quite a few potato salad recipes over the years but always fell back on my wife's recipe because nothing ever came close to how great hers is. Well, this holiday weekend, she was not feeling well so I decided to try this one and I am so glad I did. I stuck to the recipe and it is AMAZING. My 8 year old son and I cook together and whipped this out in no time and even my wife has rated it better than hers. I took some to our Memorial Day pool party and it was a hit with everyone one there too. Read More

Very nice potato salad with thick dressing. It's appropriately named because it is really creamy. This recipe had a lot of ingredients, but they all work well together. I was out of paprika, but I know the visual presentation would have been even nicer with a sprinkle of that. We enjoyed it! Read More

Excellent! I halved the recipe but went with two slices of bacon and two eggs. I also used chopped celery in place of the celery seed. While the potatoes were still warm I sprinkled a small amount of the vinegar over them hoping to impart more flavor. I just sampled the finished product and the two cloves of chopped fresh garlic that I used are a big flavor enhancer. I'm sure this will be better after it stands but I couldn't wait! Thanks for a great recipe ROCK415. Read More
