This was good. I eliminated the bacon since we are not big bacon fans and it still tasted good. Will make it again. Thanks Karen.

Flavor is fine; it's a little salty. Biggest change I would make is either halve the amount of potatoes or double the amount of everything else. I mixed the everything else first, then looked at the amount of potatoes that came out of the pot compared to the volume of the sauce, and only added half the potatoes. I weighed the potatoes, so I know I wasn't off on that. Possibly the volume difference I experienced was due to me cubing the potatoes (~1cm) rather than wedging them.Only ingredient change I made was to use plain yogurt instead of mayonnaise. Turned out fine.

This was excellent -- great flavor and very, very easy! This is going to be my go-to potato salad recipe from now on. I cubed the potatoes rather than cutting in wedges; we just like them better that way.

I used Gulden's spicy brown mustard and my family loves this potato salad, in fact my daughter never eats cold potato salad, but she does now!
