This was a very good potato salad. However, I would make it several hours before it is served to let the flavors develop. Made this for a casual dinner at the lake, and served with grilled ribs, corn, and watermelon.

Have made this twice now, with very good results. Made it for 4th of July and everyone loved it; even those who don't like potato salad! Added some crumbled bacon, it's great with the grainy mustard.

my family usually dosn't like potato salad, not so with this recipe. it was easy to make, the potatoes cooked perfectly, and the mustard added a nice piquancy to the salad. it keeps well and tastes good room temperature and cold.
