When I read this recipe, it didn't sound all that different than any other, but based on a 5 star rating by someone else, I tried it and my company did all but lick the bowl clean when I served it! Be careful with the salt. BE SURE to salt the water when you cook the potatoes! (I notice a lot of recipes don't mention that anymore. A young cook doesn't know to do this). I doubled the amount of salad dressing because (I used more like 10 or 11 potatoes)--but the eggs and it wasn't dry the next day when I served it. GREAT potato salad!
I searched for a potato salad recipe for a little BBQ we were having last weekend. I was a little inundated with all the recipes available, but I'm sure glad I went with this one.I made the salad the day before and just added a little more mayo right before serving. We got lots of comments on it. Thanks for the great recipe!

I swear there was a moment when we felt that we were young again back at my parents old house laughing the summer evening away.

This is truly a classic recipe. It is very similar to one I took from the label of a jar of Hellman's Real Mayonnaise. The changes I have made include: Since it is hard to keep celery on hand and many times I cannot find good celery, I have substituted approximately 1 tablespoon on celery seed and we love it. I also use sweet pickle relish and the juice (instead of vinegar since the pickle juice has vinegar in it). I always boil my potatoes in their jackets and peel after they have cooled. I never fai

After DH and I moved away from the farm, and to the city...I haven't done as much cooking and very little canning. But I do come to Zaar and look for new recipes once in a while. I'm still cooking Zaar!! I like to play at Facebook, with my family and friends. A lot of my Zaar friends are there!! Yay! It's a good way to keep in touch. We travel more. We're looking at the European trips now. Hope to go in the springtime. I really want to see London, I think I lived there in a past life, I've been obsessed with it since I was 10 years old!!
