Just made this for July 4th. Hallelujah I found the perfect potato salad. I made it exactly as written and it turned out perfectly. The larger whole potatoes took longer than 20 minutes to cook. I would suggest testing with a fork for tenderness.
I followed the directions exactly except I didn't peel the potatoes. Wonderful potato salad. Interesting combination of flavors. I made it ahead one day and will see how it holds up to chilling for 24 hours.
Been married to the same man for 43 years. He loves potato salad and for years we just bought home made. Gave this recipe a try cause I had everything and it was so easy. He will be in for a surprise when he come home.
This is by far the BEST potato salad I have ever made or tasted. I served it at a BBQ where I usually don't get to cook because all done up front, but I took this salad, everyone raved about it, one mother actually mashed it down and gave to her 1 year old and she ate a whole bowl. People took it home with them none left for me. I have been asked to make sure I bring it to our next family BBQ because you can't buy anything close to the taste of this one. Please take your time and try it got lots of really good tasting ingredients that blend so well together.Thank you 😊 Joan
