"Everyone enjoyed this salad- even me. (I don't like traditional potato salad.) I made it as directed, but I was careful at the end and didn't use all of the potatoes so that it had enough sauce. The green onions were mild and added freshness. Delicious!

Update: I have made this several times since I reviewed it. Another trick I learned is to add the Italian dressing to the warm potatoes. It really adds flavor."

"I have been looking for a great potato salad with awesome flavor and I think this one is it. I used fat free sour cream and turkey bacon to lighten it a bit and it still was wonderful. Great recipe!"

"Excellent salad! However, I prepare it w/yogurt instead of sour cream, and fresh garlic and Dijon mustard."

"salad really good, but I would use 3-1/2 to 4 lbs. of potatoes. I would also use 5 eggs, using one sliced with the center in for garnish, and a little sprinkle of all purpose seasoning. I also boil the eggs along with the potatoes, it saves time."
