This is THE CLASSIC summer picnic potato salad for me. I've been trying for many years to find the perfect recipe that reminded me of childhood summer picnics and this is it! Phew! I cut the recipe in half (for just 2 of us...and 2 of us nearly ate the whole bowl btw) ONLY deviation was that I used 1/2 dill pickle and 1/2 B&B pickles (all dill pickle juice though) The seasoning is dead on perfect. I'm so happy! Thank you so much!!!

I always make my Dad’s potato salad recipe… do not tell him but I think this may be my new potato salad recipe! SHHHH! I always have a problem with dry potato salad after it sits in the refrigerator, this one stayed nice and creamy even after 2 days!!!! The only thing I changed was to reduce the amount of onion to 1 cup and omitted the sugar. Do not like sweet potato salad. Next time I may use horseradish mustard for an added kick. FANTASTIC!

Brilliant flavour in this potato salad! Egg mustard potato salad isn't available in England so this is my go-to recipe for it and it's reliably great every time! To make it healthier I use extra-light mayo and extra pickle juice instead of the cream. Thanks for a great recipe!

I left out the onions & celery because we don't really care for them. Next time I will leave out the pickles but keep the pickle juice. The kids weren't crazy about seeing the green in the potato salad. Thanks Pan for a great recipe.

Thanks for posting this recipe. I reduced the number of servings to 4 since I was only serving two. I didn't have celery and onion so I substituted onion powder and celery seed. My husband and I love the classic flavor. A real winner!

My husband is picky about potato salad. He liked this one really well. He also prefers Miracle Whip.

I really liked this recipe. The creaminess, appearance...all very nice. I felt that the recipe needed a bit more mustard then what the recipe called for, it provided a pale yellow coloring but, I couldn't taste the mustard very well. Also due to our personal preferances in our home, I'm going to revise the recipe, and chop the onion, pickles and onions into slightly larges pieces than what the recipe calls for...just personal preferance here of course. Thank you for sharing this recipe!!!!!!!! This is definately a keeper. :)
