This is an excellent potato salad recipe. I used celery salt instead of the salt and celery seeds because I did not have the seeds, but it turned out fine. It is a very mild taste. Next time I will add a little more mustard, perhaps something spicy. I will absolutely use this recipe again. Thank you!

This was a very good recipe. It makes a metric ton, so be sure to have a really large bowl on hand for mixing it all up. While this is a great traditional standby, I may add a little more mustard, or perhaps some cider vinegar to the next batch in order to make it a little more tangy. Also, I followed the recipe exactly, but next time I'd quarter or dice the potatoes prior to boiling, in order to shorten the boiling time and make it easier to dress. (Slicing up soft potatoes makes them even mushier.) Thank you for the recipe!

Thanks Nurse Di. This is a very good potato salad that reminds of my Mom's. It tasted very creamy and I love the flavor of the celery seed. I made this for our Labor Day picnic down by the river. My family and friends all were very complimentary. Thanks for making me look good.

Absolutely delicious. The ingredients are simple and they create an excellent blend of flavors. This recipe is not complicated and is very easy to prepare. I served this as a side dish with BBQ burgers and baked beans.

I thought I would add my accolades, this is a perfect potato salad recipe. I changed nothing, other then cooking the potatoes already cut/sliced. I can see why you have so many reviews. Added some nice fresh scallion to the top of decoration, and added celery along with the the dried celery seeds as well. Let sit overnite and this salad can't be beat. Thanks for posting oh so long ago.

Wonderful potato salad! I used russet potatoes (no reds on hand), however otherwise prepared as instructed with the addition of just a tad more salt as to personal perference. This is basically the way I normally prepare potato salad, only with the addition of some thinly sliced celery. We enjoyed it with our barbecued ribs; a great combination! Thanks for sharing!

This was very good potato salad! My husband normally doesn't like any potato salads and he tried this one and told me to make it again and again! I was shocked. I did everything the recipe said except I didn't have any green onions, I substituted Miracle Whip, and I added a half of a cucumber chopped and like 4 strips of bacon chopped. VERY GOOD! (Oh and also I only had 2-3 pounds of baking potatoes so I used those instead of red potatoes but it came out perfect! - right amount of sauce!)

This potato salad is delicious! I don't really care for potato salads with too much dressing, so for me this was perfect. I will be using this one all the time. Thanks for posting!

I am waiting for this to chill and the flavors to marry, but I sneaked a bite and it was already delicious! Thank you so much for a great recipe! I did everything exactly as in the recipe. MAYBE could use more mustard but I don't know yet...but I'm a mustard fiend and it probably wouldn't hurt.
