Celery Seed Potato Salad

"From Branchville, New Jersey, field editor Grace Yaskovic shares this fresh-tasting potato salad seasoned with onion and celery seed. The mayonnaise dressing gets its sweetness from sugar and whipping cream, and its tang from mustard and sugar."

By far my favorite potato salad. If you like them a little on the sweeter side rather than on the really tangy or mustard-y side, you'll LOVE this.

Really tasty and a little different from the run of the mill but not so different that it wouldn't be a crowd pleaser...Thanks so much for sharing!

Brought back fond memories of Culvers Lake NJ where I vacationed in younger years at my beloved Uncle Jack and Aunt Carol's, which is near Branchville.

I thought this potato salad was great, a touch on e sweet side for me. I would cut the sugar by a third next time I make it!
