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

This is the first time I made this recipe and it is the first time I had 4 ladies at the pot luck dinner ask for the recipe!! It was a BIG HIT!! I needed this to feed more folks so I doubled the potatos but I only upped the other ingredients by half ( so if it called for 1/2 cup of mayonnaise - I only upped it to 1/4 cup to a total of 3/4 cup ) and 6 celery stalks became 9.... I used red potatoes since I did not use red apples ( used gala ). I found that this process took a lot more time than the time on the recipe - things had to cool - things had to chill. I would suggest this be done on day ahead and that you plan it to take 2 to 3 hours ( with cooking and cooking and chilling ).

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.
