    yooper's Note:

    For a classic potato salad, this is hand's down the best I've ever tasted. It is time consuming, but the end result is definately worth it! This is more of a white color potato salad, don't make the mistake of adding mustard to color it...I tried it once and it ruined the taste...tasted like any other potato salad. This makes lots, but it goes fast!

      Thanks so much for posting this. It's wonderful because the sauce doesn't absorb into the potatoes, even after a day of setting in the fridge. I'm going to use this sauce for macaroni salad as well. What a great recipe. Thank you very much.
