"Good, nice dressing but might be missing a little something, maybe a little more mustard next time,. This might not be the recipes fault as didnt acutally measure the mustard!"

"This is just how my grandmother used to make it, loved it. I changed a few things though--added 3 tablespoons of dill pickle relish, one more tablespoon of prepared mustard, and 1/2 teaspoon of ground mustard for my personal preference."

"Very good. I used purple onion instead of green since that's what I had on hand. I also added some garlic powder."

"Very good potato salad...thought it needed a little something more though. Maybe a bit more sugar, salt and/or pepper."
