Add me to the list of 5-Star reviews for this recipe. It is fantastic. One thing I typically never put in potato salad was garlic powder, but I think that and the cider vinegar are what really make the flavors come together in this recipe. That, and the proportions of each ingredient are spot on. The dressing is tangy enough to hold up to the potatoes and eggs for a nice balance. I would recommend putting the paprika on just before you're about to serve it, as you'll need to stir it up every hour or so while it's chilling to keep everything coated evenly. It also helps to mash up some of the potatoes and stir that into the dressing to give it more of a paste-like consistency, it will coat the chunks of potato better.

My husband LOVES potato salad but he just never could get the recipe correct when attempting to make it himself. I can tolerate eating the premade store bought kind but my husband absolutely hates it! I was feeling ambitious one day and decided to take a crack at making it. The recipe was suprisingly easy to make and I was VERY impressed with myself for it turning out perfect the first time. YAY! I followed the recipe pretty much exactly with just two changes. First, I did NOT use the cider vinegar. Only because when I was at the store I had thought we had some at home. Turns out we didnt and I was too lazy to go back out. Second, I added in 1/3 cup of sweet relish. Just for personal preference. Based on a previous review, I salted the water the potatoes were boiling in too. For those who have a difficult time making hard boiled eggs, I find it easiest to cover them in salted water, bring them to a boil for 5 minutes, then turn the heat down to a simmer for 10. afterwards, soak them immediately in ice water to cool them down. Should be perfect. definately keeping this recipe on hand! I would make it daily if I could. The whole bowl was licked clean within 24 hours. my husband and I LOVE this!

Made this the other day. It was super delicious. I cooked 2 pounds of potatoes, used 1 cup of full fat real mayo and 1/2 cup of low fat and used only 1/2 of the sugar and only 4 eggs. It turned out amazing! Will definitely be making this again and again.

Very good indeed. I followed the recipe as written with the exception of using just one boiled egg and adding some finely chopped green pepper. Too, I made a little discovery. When I've made potato salad in the past, I think I've not waited until the boiled potatoes were completely cool, or at room temperature resulting in a kind of "mashed" potato salad - edible, but not especially attractive. This time, I got busy with something, and came back a couple of hours later. By then the potatoes had completely cooled and had firmed up nicely and didn't stick together when I added all the other ingredients.

It was okay.. It tasted like the average picnic potato salad but with onions. I'm not a big fan of the onions but it was a pretty nice recipe.

This is the best potato salad! My family asked me to make it again before the first batch was even gone!

This was great, I did add some fresh dill to it just before serving.
