This is a great change from regular potato salad! Love it! An English take on a French recipe, now all American!

Fantastic. I used green apples and sweet onion, and skipped chives and mustard as I didn't have them but the salad still tasted really great. Highly recommended.

What a different tasting tater salad! I love all the crunch from the apple and celery. The mixture of the dressing and mayonnaise was very good. Going in the keeper file.

I followed this recipe as directed except that I didn't have lemon juice so I omitted it along with the sugar. The Dijon that I use is very mild so maybe that is why I didn't find the taste spectacular. I noticed that the mayo didn't blend into the dish well... I'm assuming that it was because of the oil in the potatoes. Next time I will try blending less oil into the mayo or same oil and less mayo... either way making it into a dressing to pour over at the very end. As other reviewers mentioned the addition of the apples was nice. It was like a cross between a potato salad and a waldorf salad. Depending which direction you are leaning you could either add boiled eggs or walnuts to it very easily.
