"Our country's birthday on the Fourth of July is traditionally celebrated with parades, American flags waving in the breeze, fireworks exploding in summery skies, and picnics under cool shade trees. Of course, the picnic has almost always included potato salad, often this creamy old-time version." — LIBERTY1234

fantastic potato salad ... I was worried when some people said the cider vinegar was too much ... but I found it to be perfect ... didn't add eggs ... put 2 chopped ribs of celery and a chopped bunch of green onions in ... added 1/3 cup diced cilantro and 6 slices of crumbled bacon ... this is a keeper!
Awful. Just awful. Not one person liked this potato salad.
This recipe was a bomb until it was "doctored" up a bit. It needs some zest such as using Miracle Whip & Mayo combined for flavor, which is was lacking. Thank goodness potato's are cheap. I also added more salt, pepper & some pimento as well as celery.
If you like tangy potato salad, this one is for you. This is a classic potato salad. Be sure to add a little diced dill pickle for extra crunch and taste. Sprinkle paprika on top, too.
I've tried making potato salad before, but nothing great. This was absolutely fantastic. I used a tablespoon of Nathan's mustard instead of dry as I didn't have dry on hand. The ultimate compliment was from my Jewish Mother in Law who said it was the best she'd ever tasted and reminded her of what she'd had growing up.
Reduce the vinegar or pucker up! I would reduce by half maybe less than that.. my whole family complimented the recipe but said way too much vinegar.
I absolutely love this recipe. I purposly make more than I think I need for a party so I will have leftovers. It is a creamy, true potato salad without having a bunch of nonsense ingredients mixed in and skewing the flavor and texture. Gets compliments every time.
Excellent! Tastes just like a deviled egg potato salad. Make sure you let it chill overnight for best results. Made this all last summer and we never tired of it....great recipe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
