      I have been cooking for 40 years and I must say this is the BEST POTATOE SALAD I have ever tasted. Made this a couple of weeks ago at a picnic at Thunder of Louisville, Kentucky. Wow. This is no fail, easy to follow, and if you follow this you cannot make any mistakes. You know what is best about this recipe? This can be used by a beginner or someone that has been cooking for years. If you are a beginner you will have rave reviews. If you are a veteran you will continue to keep your good reputation as a good cook. Rock On!

      So good. I made this for DD's slumber party and we all enjoyed it. I halved the recipe but used the same amount of eggs as written.....loved it. Thank you for sharing.

      I used a dijon salad dressing (because it's all I had) and it was the best potato salad I'd ever tasted. It was the first time I tried this recipe.
