    I make potato salad quite often and have a tip--If you have a wide pot and a large steamer basket, you can cook your potatoes and eggs for potato salad at the same time. I chop the celery, pickles, and whatever else I want to add to the salad while the potatoes and eggs are cooking. I take the eggs out of the steamer basket and drop them into cold water to coo for a few minutes.

    I thought this was a good quick potato salad, but my husband did not like the Dijon in it so that it why he gave it three stars. He wanted a little pickle in it as well.

    I thought this was missing something...pickle relish maybe? Just was not very flavorful.

    OMG! This is delicious. I'm from PA. and have a little Amish in my blood. Never thought I'd like any other type of potato salad, but I will definitely make this again.

    My husband and I really like this potato salad!! Used regular Idaho potatoes, didn't have green bell pepper, was still great!

    Made this for our family of four--------was so very good--had a little left over & can't wait to eat it even cold. Was easy to prepare & didn't change a thing.
