Changed this a lot, but still really loved it. Followed another reviewer and used water chestnuts instead of celery, and it worked perfectly. I also used Trader Joe's wasabi mayonnaise, which is pretty hot, so used a couple tablespoons for a good amount of wasabi flavor and a moderate amount of spice. I couldn't bring myself to sub the rest as regular mayo, so used nonfat sour cream (but only about a quarter of the quantity). And left the apple out, since it wasn't really our kind of combo. But with those changes - it was a great new take on potato salad. The wasabi flavor is unique and really yummy. I bet this flavor combo would be wonderful in a deviled egg too.
