I feel like that amount of mustard was too much. I used less than that and it was a little overpowering. I didn't have red onion so I didn't add that. I had to use more mayonnaise than the recipe called for. I used bread and butter pickles instead of dill. I also added dill weed at the end. My grandma added pickle juice when she made potato salad I'd do that and go with less mustard. Read More

Hubby loves mustard and he loved this potato salad. You can certainly add celery for crunch and olives for contrast. Thanks. Read More

This has become the absolute best potato salad I have ever made. We both loved it. I used French's new sweet mustard and it has become my favorite mustard. Do not change a thing. Fantastic. Read More

I added extra pickles and a little more mayo. I also added about a Tbsp of safflower oil to the mixture to make to creamier. turned out amazing! The only thing I would do differently is cubing the potatoes before boiling. Read More

Delicious! I used red potatoes which I cubed before boiling. Since we only had regular yellow mustard I used that but also added whole grain dijon mustard and a little dill pickle juice. I'll definitely make this again! Read More

As a general rule I hate potato salad but I always have to have a taste when it's available because every few years or so there is that one that gets it right and I love it. Anyway this is that one. If you're into bold pickle-y flavors this one will deliver! If you like classic bland potato salads then you should look elsewhere. I like to add dried dill to taste but besides that I make it exactly as written. Read More
