My potato salad is so easy, I can quickly put it together in the kitchen of our trailer home on the lake. I've shared the recipe with our three daughters, and it's become a signature dish with all of them. Our grandchildren eat it up.

"Delicious and really simple to prepare. I even hard cooked the eggs in the same pot as the potatoes!"

"I loved this and for anyone who can't use mayo it is great. I used dill pickles instead of relish A really good french onion dip that makes all the difference, and extra bacon. Yum"

"I was disappointed with this recipe. The salad seems to be missing something. I felt the French onion dip didn't give the salad a lot of flavor. Perhaps adding some mayo or salad dressing would perk up this salad. I'm sorry I have to say this, but this potato salad didn't impress my husband and I."

"Sorry, I meant to also include I used Marie's Roasted French Onion Dip (which had a sort of light brown tint to the coloring). I wasn't able to find the 8 oz. container of dip so I had to eyeball the amount."
