This is the best substitute for mayo I've ever had/made and a yummy sauce. It has a pungent flavor (apple cider vinegar has a bite) which I really liked, but I did mix it with mayo (as suggested) for the potato salad. I also used the optional black pepper which gave it a nice kick, but I would omit it or use less if spicy isn't your thing. Thanks for posting this Beachgirl!

Very good. I agree with Olive Blossom's comments. Additionally, I can imagine adjusting the seasonings, depending on the effect you are trying to achieve. I am thinking about mixing in a little fat free yogurt or perhaps buttermilk, but it is great as it.

I grew up on this dressing for both potato & macaroni salad. It beats jarred mayo dressings all to pieces. I used this recipe for macaroni salad for this Christmas. *It's best to save a little dressing in a container until after the salad has chilled because the macaroni really absorbs it. Mix & then add more into the salad so it's not dry. Love, love it as potato salad as well. Merry Christmas folks!

I was low on mayo so decided to try this and am so glad I did. I'll not be using a mayo based dressing any more. I used no mayo and everyone loved it. Thanks for sharing

I am on weight watchers and used 1/8 C.splenda instead of 1/4 C sugar. I added this hot to warm potatoes and added fresh chives and celery.I did not add the mayo as recommended and still thought this was great. Thanks

Excellent homemade dressing...... I added 3 egg yolks instead of one egg to the recipe for extra richness, and cut the sugar back to 2 tablespoons, and then mixed it with 1 cup of Hellman's mayo....I used it for chicken salad sandwich's.....my family loved it!......Thanks so much BeachGirl for sharing a wonderful recipe!
