I love my Better Homes & Garden Cook Book, and this recipe is another example of why! I made this last night, and it was DELICIOUS! My husband ate two servings (and he doesn't like potato salad). I used red peppers, Dijon mustard and omitted the eggs. Recipe suggests substituting mayo with plain yogurt or sour cream. Easily halved; though I would use 1/4 tsp. salt.

Fantastic potato salad, Steph! It's hanging out in our fridge getting even better for tomorrow, but I had a few bites when I made it and am delighted with the result. I used half plain yogurt instead of all mayo, 1 dill pickle instead of the bell pepper (didn't have one), and 2 T of pickle juice for the vinegar. Thanks for posting!

Personally, my favorite potato salads nearly always have eggs so we liked this one just as written.As a personal preferance, next time I'd increase the mustard and decrease the vinegar. Good salad, Steph & Don.

I was really craving potato salad and this certainly hit the spot. I cut it in half since it was just the two of us. I following your instructions using mayo instead of salad dressing. Very creamy and very flavorful. Thank you so much, Steph inaway, for sharing this.
