I always mix my dressing ingredients together first before adding to the entire dish. For instance mix the mayo, salt, pepper, horseradish together first in a small dish. If you are usign small pieces of onion and celery too then add that in as well, Then mix all of that with the potatoes. It spreads all of the dressing ingredients better throughout the salad. Tastes better faster. Although it is always better to let it "sit" a bit before serving this helps speed up that process.

Found the vegetables overpowering and could not taste the potato. They made it too crunchy. Also thought that there was way too much dressing and it seemed to drown the salad.

This is sooo good! I made this for my grandmother's funeral because my mom was making the "family recipe" and I didn't realize it and made a potato salad, too. So, I just quickly modified our recipe to yours and I love it! Thanks so much for sharing! Oh, and my version had celery in it because I'd already made it all up except for the dressing, cucumbers and green pepper, so it was just like yours, but with celery. Still totally yummy. :)

A wower. I skipped one pepper and the eggs and cukes, used Dijon and added a lovely sprinkling of edible flowers to the top. Best ever. Yes -- it's the horseradish touch that adds that special zip and I don't like horseradish. No one could tell it was an ingredient.

This potato salad was fantastic!! I love the addition of the horseradish and cucumber! I made as directed except I omitted the bell peppers (food allergy). The dijon mustard and horseradish weren't overpowering, but just sang backup. This is now my new potato salad. Thank you Cathi Allen! Edit: I have made this several times since my review. I have never used dijonnaise mustard - only Dijon or Spicy Brown. I have cut the mayo by 1/2 cup as the recipe measurement is simply too much. I sometimes add a touch more horseradish because that suits our tastes. Still my favorite potato salad by far! Thanks!

i love crunch, and tangy flavors, so when i saw this recipe included cukes i was thrilled. the crunch factor is great. i will use less of the regular mustard next time. it was a little too tangy for my taste. i really liked the combination of ingredients this recipe used. i only used one cucumber, one green pepper, and half of a spanish onion.

I made it without the red onions, but it turned out great! Will definitely use again.

Great! The horseradish is a nice touch. I only used less horseradish than the recipe called for, about a teaspoon, but it still gave it a nice punch. No one could figure out what my secret ingredient was.

I love how colorful and crunchy this salad is. You get lots of extra veggies besides the potatoes. I only had one cucumber, but it was rather large. The mustard (I used Dijon) and horseradish added nice flavor but were not at all overpowering. Thanx for a new and different potato salad!

This is the first hot day of our summer here in this part of Australia so couldn't wait to try this recipe and we sure were not disappointed. Thanks
