Vinegar and lemon juice add a slightly tangy taste to this creamy potato salad. It's wonderful with baked beans and barbecue. —Melissa Davies, Clermont, Florida

"Outstanding potato salad -- excellent texture, just enough variety, and appropriate proportion of flavors. Received rave reviews at Thanksgiving. My husband wanted a bit more tang, perhaps by adding paprika, so I will try that next time."

"This is a really great potato salad recipe. I omit the onion and add a little celery instead. I used fresh dill and parsley, yummy!"

"Had to make something for a pot luck and since I had a ton of potatoes decided to make this. There was one other potato salad on the table next to mine. At the end of the line, mine was gone and the other dish was still half full. It was a hit and I got compliments! I used 3 T. of mustard and would cut it to 2 T. next time because, although everyone else loved the dish and it was good, I am just not a big fan of mustard."

"Husband is picky on potato salad and he LOVED this one. Usually he likes sweet versions so I was surprised he was impressed. I will have to remember to get redskins just for this recipe; I think they make a better salad."

"I thought it was a little "tangy" and love foods with heat so I added 2 diced jalepenos and 1/2 tsp white pepper - perfect balance!"
