MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 16, 2014

"Reviewers are right. This is fabulous potato salad. My husband is a potato salad connoisseur and he says this is the best he has ever tried. The one change I made was to use all mayonnaise because I didn't have sour cream on hand. We like mustard flavor so may add a little more next time. Superb!!"

"My husband really loves mustard potato salad, and I searched and found this, not realizing that it only called for 1tsp of mustard. So we followed the recipe, adding a bit more salt and pepper as well as paprika, and then put maybe a half cup, 3/4 cup of mustard. Pretty good, but the cook time on the potatoes is way too long. Keep close on the potatoes while they're boiling.....keep them from getting mushy. I'll make this again."
