I got this recipe from my sister-in-law and I've made it numerous times at the request of friends and co-workers. It's quick and easy, just what I need in my busy life. I learned how to cook from the two best cooks I know - my mom, Arline, and my Grandma Etta. —Ginger Cusano, Sandusky, Ohio

"Great recipe, very close to a recipe I've been using ingredient wise, but I'd never thought about roasting the potatoes before. I made it one time as called for and then once with a tablespoon of Dijon mustard both ways were good, but the Dijon gave it a kick of flavor."

"Roasting the potatoes until they are crispy is a difference maker. I tossed the potatoes with salt before roasting. That little step really helps the flavor."

"It was so easy since I had leftover roasted potatoes and fried bacon strips. My husband said it was good! I added a tablespoon or two of buttermilk to thin and extend the mayo. It was quick and delicious!!"

"My family has never liked any sort of potato salad. HOWEVER.....they do now! This is a great potato salad, especially if you prefer a lot less mayonaise."
