Recipe Comments & Reviews

Sooooo good. The perfect dressing for new potatoes.
Wonderful recipe but please leave the salt out or cut it way down. I had to start over again and added half the salt.
I made this for a large group and literally everyone raved over the potato salad. I had at least 10 people ask for the recipe. Definitely a keeper!!
Delicious, loved the dill in it.
This recipe was easy to make and very tasty. I dint use the dill, kids are very picky, and only used about half of the celery called for. Great with BBQ chicken or steak.
This a great recipe. I substituted turkey bacon and the results were very good.
