This is very close to a family favorite of mine too. I just added thinly sliced radishes and chopped cooked bacon. Delicious!

I made 2 different potato salads from this site on the same day to test them. The other was way tastier, as it included bacon. This is an easy recipe with a potato taste and very few other ingredients. It is plain.

Ashaline, I do not care for celery seed., So I use thinly chopped celery. I left out the dill pickles and used fresh dill. Start with a good tablespoon of chopped dill. I love dill pickles and when I use dill pickles I only use half a cup. Hope this gives you ideas. Use sweet onion or green onion.

If you need to save some time, use a 36 oz bag of cubed hashbrown potatoes, thawed and bake till slightly crisp. Nobody will know you didn't cube them yourself.

This was pretty good. I was expecting it to be better for some reason. The only change that I made was I added some mustard to it. My daughter was super excited to eat it too, and said it was not what she was expecting and thought is was ok. But, so many other people really love this, if you're interested I say try it. Maybe it was the mustard I added!

I'd like to offer one bit of advice that saves time. Cut the potatoes into cubes BEFORE boiling (peeled or not), bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmer & cook for about 10 min or fork tender. Drain and continue as directed.

This is the best potato salad I have ever had. My mom's is good but I couldn't find the recipe. I made this yesterday for a barbecue today. Last night my husband and I couldn't help each having a sample bowl! Delicious!!

I make this but adding mustard and without celery seed or paprika. It's my family's favorite. In fact, one of my grandsons ate 2 lbs of it a couple of nights ago.
