Made it for the 1st time last night and we all loved it. Very creamy. Next time I won't add as much sugar, but will keep everything else the same.
Used red potatoes instead of white. While this taste ok to good for us, I just plain thought it was too much work. I will revert back to other recipes. Thanks anyway.
Everytime I make this potato salad everyone wants the recipe. I use a little more onion, no carrots, and celery only if I have it. I also add a little extra celery seed to the dressing. I top the salad with sliced hard boiled eggs and sprinkle with paprika for a finished look.
Wonderful! I also omitted the carrots (our least favourite veggie)as well as the butter. I also reduced the sugar to a scant 1/2 cup and added 1 tablespoon of celery seed to the dressing. I increased the apple cider vinegar from 1/3 cup to 1/2 cup and instead of plain milk, I used buttermilk. I also made the dressing in the microwave. After the dressing cooled, I mixed it in with the spuds and added a good handful of chopped fresh dill. This is our "summer salad of the year"! Thanks MelCavell.
I've made this recipe several times now, and I like the sweet flavor of it, though sometimes I decrease the sugar a bit. I don't like celery so I substitute about a teaspoon of celery salt, and I use green onions. This doesn't replace my standard potato salad recipe, but its great for a change of pace.
Tastes just like I remember my Great Grandmother's potato salad tasting. Sogood! Definitely a keeper.
Thanks for a delicious recipe. I've made a different cooked dressing for years and this one is much creamier. I added salt & celery seed to my own taste since an amount wasn't listed. I also added green pepper & olives (personal preference). This dressing would also be great for cole slaw & macaroni salad.
I've used the same potato salad recipe for years and decided to try yours.I think it's delicious and sure hubby will like it too.Thanks for the recipe.
