  1. We love potato salad in Texas and dill pickles, eggs and onion are a must. Really enjoyed the addition of the celery seed. Tried to make a half recipe, but I think I went a little over -- that's a good thing. Only change I made was to add more chopped egg. This will go well with our dinner tonight.
  2. Hope you don't mind that I customized this to my taste - I prefer to make my potato salad without eggs and less mayo. I also loved your idea of pickles to taste, and decided it would be fun to try (for the first time) with a lot (triple the amount) and I super loved it! Yummy.
  3. Best potato salad I have ever made! Thankyou!
  4. In my family this was always referred to as American Potato Salad - who knew it would work for Sweden, too? I'm visualizing the Swedish Chef, ja sure, you betcha! I love the pickles and onions! Oh, I cut it down for 2 of us!! made for CQ4/2017
  5. I made 1/4 of this recipe and it made more than 4 of us could eat! I love dill pickles so I'd probably double of triple the amount of them next time. So good and a great addition to the smorgasbord. Thanks!


  1. I substitute the pickle for an apple.
