"My name for it says it all. This is what I grew up eating and is the only kind that I have ever tried and liked. My friend Steph always swore that she hated the stuff, too, till she tried this. Now she, and many others, are converts too. The original is made with full fat mayo and either whole milk yogurt or sour cream, but the light is just as good. Just remember to hard boil the eggs :-)"

"This was a very yummy potato salad, that my sis and me enjoyed a lot for lunch today. The dressing was creamy, but a little too plain for us. Maybe some roasted garlic and paprika could make a nice addition? I especially enjoyed the combination of egg, dill and potatoes. Next time I might add some corn kernels or roasted red bell pepper. This salad is very versatile and great for many occasions. Ill definitely make it again! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, VNess. Made and reviewed for I Recommend Tag Game May 2010."
"Fan-damn-tastic! We had relatives from out of town and I made this to compliment baby-backs. I did add a few things: red onions, paprika and relish...I didn't have any white vinegar so I used apple cider vinegar. Thank you, thank you for this recipe. This went over like gang-busters. Even better the 2nd day. Brigadier12"
"I was asked to bring potato salad for a work potluck, but I had never made potato salad before because I don't like it. So I was very happy to find this recipe, which I actually ate! Several co-workers raved about how fabulous it was, even those who already love potato salad. I halved the recipe, used fat free sour cream and omitted the salt and celery (didn't have any celery). Thanks for sharing!"
"This is the best potato salad I've EVER had - and I've tried them all. Super yummy - the dill makes the difference. All my kids love it too. It didn't convert my DH, who hates the texture of any potato salad, but that's okay."
"We enjoyed this variation on potato salad. It's a great option for those of us who don't like the sweet variety. I think I'll try it with chopped sweet onion next time and maybe more celery. I used considerably less mayo than called for, but that's just personal preference. Very tasty!"
"Wow-Sooooo Yummy! I made this for my son's First Communion Luncheon as one of our side salads and it got rave reviews from all of our guests! My friend who doesn't like traditional potato salad said this one looked so "classy"(?) she just had to try it. She loved it too! Thanks for the awesome recipe, it was just what I was hoping for!"
"I stole a taste of this right before wrapping it up and putting it in the fridge for tomorrow's barbeque. The taste is out of this world. Can't wait to try it once the flavours have blended together! I predict no leftovers. Thank you so much for posting!"
"My family loved this! I left out the egg and Instead of the oil, vinegar, onion and garlic powders, I used garlic italian salad dressing. Which made it really easy. The dillweed and sour cream make this recipe special."
"Loved this recipe, used garden potatoes and wow the only thing I added more dill and it was wonderful. The girls from work loved it to it was all gone! Nothing left over for hubbies lunch! lol"
"This is a terrific recipe! Have only used russet potatoes; yukon gold or red would probably be much better. Used balsalmic vinegar and zero-fat,(Heart Beat mayo). I don't bother peeling potatoes either, just give a good scrub and get more nutrition!"
"I DO like other potato salads, and still this one was very very good. I recommend it for anyone who can handle a dairy- based potato salad. Thanks!"
"this is the best potato salad ever. I made it for my daughters birthday. A guest has just requested I make it for a potluck tomorrow."
"Great recipe! Nice change of pace as far as potato salads go. Only criticism would be that the ingredients are not in the order used in the recipe, which can be very confusing, esp. to new cooks! Thanks for sharing it!"
"Thank you VNess! I used the sour cream option, did it with tiny, whole, new potatoes (with their skin left on) ... and, as my name was on the salad bowl, collected the compliments.(... and I always thought 'name-on-the-bowl' was only to guarantee you got the bowl back.) Followed the recipe exactly except for using Balsamic vinegar."
"Super easy to make. Big hit with friends and family. Always asked to bring the potato salad. Everyone in love with the taste. Thanks for a great recipe."
"This potato salad is amazing! I was really tired of my potato salad and I was asked to bring some to a BBQ; that's when I found your recipe. The only thing I did different was to use 1 tsp dried dill. I think it might need a little more salt but, that is just personal preference. This is even more excellent the next day! Thank you for this potato salad recipe... I don't think I will ever make another recipe again:-) "
"I have never had a better potato salad.I try a new recipe every time I make potato salad,always looking for that certian taste,I did use dried dill,sour cream,more salt and I added mustard.I now have the perfect potato salad.Thank you so much,VNess.for ending this hunt for me."
