Oh boy!! You weren't kidding when you said "Worlds Best Potato Salad"!! I would rate it 10 stars if I could. This is the BEST BEST potato salad that I have had in all my life!! And trust me I am old!! LOL I have a basic recipe that I always refer to, but I wanted to try something new.

I followed the recipe it to the tee, it was creamy i will give it that but it tasted awful, I used very little of it as I hated to waste all the time and effort it took to prepare but. , I had to add more mayo and mustard and some of my green tomato relish before it was edible... I won't be wasting all the ingredients it took for this recipe again.
