Great dressing! I needed a new recipe for Potato Salad and tried this one. Everyone loved it. Very creamy, easy to make and tasted wonderful. Will use this again!

This was nice and creamy, but it was too sweet for my taste. I would decrease the sugar to 1/4 cup and increase the mustard to 2 teaspoons.

This is a nice alternative to mayonnaise-based potato salad. This tastes very similar to the dressing that my Father put over dandelion greens when I was a child. It's just a little too sweet for our taste, so I will try 1/4 cup sugar next time, but this is a good recipe.

Too much vinegar for my taste. I really wanted to taste the mustard more.
