Honey-Dijon Potato Salad Recipe

Honey-Dijon Potato Salad Recipe

No matter which recipe I tried, my potato salad always turned out bland. So I came up with this creamy version that has plenty of pizzazz. It's so tangy and flavorful, you wouldn't realize it calls for fat-free honey-Dijon salad dressing. It's a favorite at picnics. —Kristie Kline Jones, Douglas, Wyoming

"My family really enjoyed this potatoe salad. I used green onion instead of one small onion and celery instead of green pepper. I also added one ts of celery seed. I used 3 hard boiled eggs with yolks. Not as healthy as the recipe intended but it sure was tasty. I made this salad with my homemade mayo.

2 raw egg yolks
4ts if lemon juice or white wine vinegar
1 tb spicy brown mustards
1 cup vegetable oil
Salt & pepper to taste
Pulse first 3 ingredients in food processor while slowly adding vegetable oil. Mayo keeps for up to one week in refrigerator."

"I finely found a potato salad recipe I like. Good sharp taste. I used regular mayonnaise and honey mustard dressing, which is what I had on hand. I am going to experiment with different flavored vinegars when I make this again. Loved the pickle flavor."

"This is a good recipe. I made some some slight modifications since I didn't have the pickles. I read somewhere to add dressing to warm potatoes so they'll absorb more flavor. It works for me."
