Reviews for Potato Salad with Cucumbers
"This recipe was awesome and a big hit at my sons birthday party! I may add red onions and some actual cucumbers next time. We are still snacking on the left overs, lol. My son comes begging when he sees me eating it."
"My husband and I absolutely loved this potato salad. I couldn't find the cucumber dressing, but found Kraft dill dressing and used it instead of the dressing called for and I skipped the dill. Added 2 chopped eggs and added red onions chopped. It was delicious!!!!"
"This is one of the best potato salads that I have ever tasted. I made it for a goodbye party at work and everyone loved it."
"Absolutely the BEST potato salad I've ever made or eaten. The dill gives it that extra twang that's savored after every bite."
"I down-sized the salad to make 10 servings and added 2 chopped hard cooked eggs, pureed cucumber to the salad dressing mixture and chopped cucumber to the potato mixture. I also garnished the salad with Paprika."
"i make this for our get togethers and everyone love it"
"I mADE THIS EXCTLY AS THE RECEIPE CLLAS FOR AND I GET RAVE REVIEWS EVERY TIME IT HAS BECOME MY "SPECIALITY" FOR ALL FAMILY GET TOGETHERS"
"This is excellent. Everyone goes WOW over this when served. Theres never any leftovers."
"I really liked this potato salad. I thought that the cucmber flavoring was missing even though I used the cucumber dressing from Kraft. Next time I make this I will cut down on the dill and add a cucumber. Very yummy potato salad. Was a crowd pleaser at our family reunion."
"I added a whole cucumber and de-seeded and diced it then added it to the dressing. I used 1 bottle of the Kraft cucumber ranch, 1.5 cups mayo, and 1/2 cup sour cream...I'll know on the 4th if my guests like it but I think it is awesome."
"Kraft has come out with a cucumber ranch dressing. I added a 1/4 of a cucumber diced to boost the cucumber flavor. I also doubled the dill, celery and green onions. I also added a 1/4 cup red onion. It was really good. A nice change on regular potato salad."
"Outstanding flavor, I found it to need less dill and added pickles. Also the cucumber ranch dressing was impossible to find. It was easily made in the blender with half the milk and a cucumber. Over all I highly recommend this, my family loved it!"
