    This turned out good. I only changed the way I did the potatoes(red), I used the mandoline slicer on thick slices and then I boiled for 5-8 minutes, breaking but not mashing. I did double the recipe and think it could have used a hair more vinegar. Thanks for sharing. I will keep this one in the recipe book.

    I think I made the same mistake as Anniesmom and doubled the potatoes and forgot to double the rest. But they still were so good. Creamy, warm and a great blend flavors that truly complimented each other. We really wanted something differant from the usual mayonaise potatoe salad and this sure was it. Thanks truebrit for posting.

    Loved this taste! I doubled the potatoes, but, forgot to double the rest of the ingredients and it still turned out great! My hard to please 10 year old even asked for seconds! Can't wait to make it again, and the next time, I'll do it the right way!

    I made to go along with our Recipe #86539, and I can say it went over really well! Everyone enjoyed it and said, "Let's have this one again" so it's a go! The flavors were perfect and the bowl was empty at the end of the meal. (I doubled the amount for 4 of us). Excellent side dish to just about any meal! Thanks for sharing it!

    We refer to this as "GPS" as in German Potato Salad. Everyone loves it. I don't use the celery seed tho. Thanks for actually giving accurate measurements - I never can share 'cause I never have actually measured how much of each ingredient I use!
