Just got done making this. We also added a little spicy brown mustard as well. Very good!!! Will keep this recipe to use again. Thanks for a great potato salad!

I made this one today! I haven't made this in years. When I first started out cooking I got the recipe from the back of the Hellmans Mayo jar. It is good! We ate it with Korean ribs and corn on the cobb. I didn't add the onions. I knew my husband wouldn't go for that. So I added a little sliced green onions and shredded baby carrots for some color. Next time, I will add more than two eggs.

This was amazing! I've made this once before and this is def. a keeper! I added in some sweet yellow and red peppers to mine as well. Absolutely divine! Thank you for this wonderful recipe :)

Very good potato salad...I had never tried this type and I must say it is much better than the recipe I have always used. Next time I will use 1/2 the vinegar because I used mustard as well. Thanks for posting.

I've been using this recipe for years now. It is one of the better potato salad recipes out there. Plain and simple and taste great.

I followed the recipe as is except I chopped 5 eggs into the salad, used less celery and chopped it fine, added 1 tsp. prepared mustard, and added about 3/4 teaspoon of poppy seeds (have been adding poppy seed to my potatoe salad for many years). I think the salt may be just a tad too much and will probably reduce that to 1 tsp next time. Overall, a yummy salad! Thanks for sharing!

Excellent basic recipe. I added a teaspoon of spicy brown mustard, a dash of dill, and a smidgeon of cayenne. Also, reduced the vinegar, substituted plain yogurt for 1/3 of the mayo and used green onions, instead of regular. I didn't include the eggs or sugar.

I really liked this PS recipe. Very simple, and for those (like my sister) who don't like their potato salad with mustard.
