    Mr Dan1960's Note:

    This was my Grandma's recipe for potato salad of course I have tweaked it up a bit, however it still is hers and tastes every bit as good as 40 years ago.

      DH is the potato salad lover in our house and he said to rate this potato salad recipe a definite 5! I didnt read the instructions carefully and missed two steps. :( I did peel and cube my potatoes then boiled and didnt marinate them in the apple cider vinegar overnight. Added the apple cider vinegar to the mayonnaise mixture, used onion powder instead of green onions, doubled the eggs to 4 and mayo to 2 cups, added dried tarragon, instead of 3 pickles used sweet pickle relish, celery seed in place of the celery, and 1 packet of Truvia sugar substitute. With the changes I made this was still a very good potato salad and loved the zip from the mustard and the slight licorice flavor of the tarragon. Served with Debbwl's Update Onion Burger #393140 and enjoyed them both a lot. Made and reviewed for the French Forums June's Herb and Spice Tag Game - Tarragon.
