My sis in law used Idaho Russet, she also told me she uses light mayonnaise when making her salad. Add as much or as little of the sauce depending how dry/moist you like your salad.

Way too sweet for my family. None of us liked the creamy texture of the mashed potatoes either. I guess I will go back to my basic recipe.

Too sweet for us with the relish and Miracle Whip, and none of us enjoyed the texture of the salad at all. I don't think we will have this again. Thanks for posting it though!

I followed the ingredients for this recipe except no onions and used 1/2 the amt of mustard. I like everything about this potato salad except for the amt of mustard; the taste permeates and overshadows the rest of the great flavors. Made for Wonders 2008
