I was so excited to try this recipe! With 84 reviews and 4.5 stars, I figured I couldn't go wrong...but I did!
This is really a very B-L-A-N-D potato salad! I followed the recipe as instructed, except I used sweet pickle relish rather than cubed sweet pickles. It looked too dry, so I added more mayonnaise and then tasted it. It was SO bland! So, I added a little more black pepper, and a healthy amount of celery seed and paprika. I still found it just "missing something," so I added a little more mustard. No dice. Finally, because someone here mentioned she had done so, I put a little red wine vinegar in it. That gave it a little kick, but this still is missing that "twang" I think a good potato salad should have. Maybe it needs some DILL pickles - maybe that is what is missing. Sadly, I won't make this recipe again. :o( SORRY!
