Potato Salad 101

    This is exactly what you want potato salad to be. The simple flavors all meld well together to create that taste we all expect and love. I was hesitant to make this Cooking Light recipe, however, using reduced fat mayo definitely did not compromise the flavor. I followed the recipe almost exactly, I added 1/2 cup more celery and in my mayo/mustard mixture I added more salt and a dash of balsamic vinegar. It really turned out wonderful. Yet another great Cooking Light recipe where you don't even notice its "Light".

    Yum! My husband has always been wanting a good mustard potato salad like his mom used to make, which we don't have a recipe for. This has come pretty close! The first time I made this I misread the recipe and used only 1/4 c (plus an extra Tb for my husband) of mayo and it still came out very tasty. This is a keeper for us!

    Excellent! I followed the recipe exactly and it came out perfect. Amazing that it is so tasty yet a healthier version of a regular potato salad. Next time I will add maybe a half cup of green peas but thats my own personal preference. I will make this regularly for sure.

    Really liked this recipe. It was my first time making potato salad, so I followed the reciept and added a small can of black olives and it turned out great! I will make again :)

    This is the perfect potato salad. I made it for friends and she absolutely loved it. The recipe is like the old fashioned potato salad, but it is much healthier than the old version. I will definitely make this again when a potato salad is needed. No longer will I buy deli potato salad.

    Used vidalia onion since that is what I had. Peeled and cut the potatoes before cooking and they turned out great. Husband and Dad couldn't believe it was "light". Outstanding flavor and very easy to make -- only chilled for 30 min and the flavors had already meshed. Definitely a keeper. Served as a side along with steamed haricots verts for Marinated London Broil: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/marinated-london-broil-10000001734303/ Delicious!

    Quick and easy, omitted the mustard and hard boiled egg. Just enough balance of sweet and viegary taste

    Excellent potato salad, especially with creamy new red potatoes from the farmer's market. No changes except to add chopped Italian parsely and use chopped sweet pickle rather than relish. This makes a lot! I think there are more like 10 servings here.

    Don't change anything! It comes out perfect every time. This is my go-to recipe for summer potlucks and every time the bowl is practically licked clean. This is so much better than store bought but tastes equally indulgent.

    No expensive add-ins, traditional flavor combos, pretty good. Followed ingredient list, using half red & half yellow potatoes and half whole grain & half dijon mustards but didn't follow the directions. Now we always cube potatoes first, then boil -- this is quicker & easier for us. When done, drained and tossed with vinegar & oil right away then let come down to room temp. Mixed the relish into the mayo dressing. Added the prepped veg to the potato bowl, dolloped the dressing on top, combined and put in fridge.
