  1. Great recipe, I also add some green onions and bacon. Now that makes it perfect. Oh and I always us fat free or at the very least low fat sour cream and mayo.
  2. I can tell you that I will be making this potato salad a lot! We loved it! I knew from looking at the recipe, that I would want a little more flavor added in. So I added in 2 cloves of minced garlic, 3-4 chopped green onions, onion and garlic powders, a splash of lemon juice, and a little more dill because we love dill! The sauce is sooo creamy! I didn't have enough time to marinate long in the fridge, only 30 min. But with those extra additions, the potato salad was already flavorful enough and we ate it at room temp instead of cold. I have leftovers in the fridge now, so we will be having it tomorrow cold out of the fridge. Thank you for this recipe. It is delicious!
  3. Hands down THE best potato salad I've ever had! My fiance raved about it too and he's not usually a potato salad fan. I made it exactly as stated and it is perfect! It's also inexpensive and ridiculously easy to make. This one's a keeper!
  4. I loved this potato salad so much. It was a big hit in my house! Perfect side dish for so many recipes.
  5. Perfect dressing! This will be my new go-to recipe!


  1. Added more Dill, chopped arugula, lots of Vidalia onion. Everyone I fed it to loved it.


I work as a professional stagehand for my local union (IATSE Local 26, West Michigan Stagehands), which takes me all over the state and lets me meet all sorts of interesting people. My primary training is in lighting and wardrobe, and I can be found backstage at everything from rock concerts to opera/ballet/symphony/Broadway tour performances to hockey games to corporate meetings and Presidential appearances. In June of 2005, my Local elected me to serve as a delegate to our International convention in mid-July, which was held in Honolulu. In November of 2008, I was elected to my third three-year term as Recording Secretary of my union local. Currently, I am the news poster for www.megatechnews, a computer tech site affiliated with several other tech sites. My biggest passion is union activism. The more I get involved, the more I want to be involved. I also read like a fiend and enjoy "discovering" local or regional bands at local clubs. Recently, I started making jewelry again after a more than ten-year hiatus. It started as a project for Christmas presents, but doing it reminded me how much I enjoy it, so I may be resurrecting my business soon. I never duplicate a piece, because the entire point is that I do custom work, and will take orders to suit. The pieces I have done are in a photo album on Facebook located here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=21364&id=1373365950&l=5be410742d
