This is almost identical to the potato salad I make and it's awesome. The only things I do differently is to add celery seed to taste and a small amount of prepared mustard and sweet Gherkin pickles instead of dill pickles. I don't use dill weed, I may have to try it.

This truly is *perfect*! 100% exactly the way potato salad should taste and the texture was divine, thank you so much for sharing the recipe.

There are few things more nose-shrivelling to me than sweet macaroni or potato salad and THIS one avoids that mistake to perfection. My mom made hers like this as well and it's how I make my own. I've put this in my "Encore!" Zaar cookbook which means it's going to be made again and again. Thank you!

This is the closest one I could find to my mothers recipe, Its the best, I hate sweet potato salad with mustard. We never measure so I cant be certain, but it has almost all the same ingredients, so yeah 10 stars for this recipe!!!

Fantastic potato salad! I steamed 7 smallish Russetts and did not peel them. I didn't use celery for personal preference and used a whole Clausen dill pickle that I threw in my food processor along with a small onion. This was very very good and I loved the addition of the dill as a garnish, I was out ofpaprika but love the color so I just sprinkled a little cayenne and this was enjoyed by all. I will be making this all summer! Thank you.

Perfect indeed! This is extremely close to the recipe I knew when I was growing up. My only changes were to use 4 chopped baby dills, 6 chopped eggs in the salad, 4 as a garnish, no celery and a tablespoon of mustard in the mix. It turned out great. I'm very happy that this recipe was submitted. It will be made constantly. My thanks to Julie and her mom!

This is the BEST potato salad I've ever had, and I usually like sweet pickles in my salad. You don't miss them. We're lucky if there is any left over when we first make it, but it really is better the second day. The BEST!
