    This recipe was awesome and a big hit at my sons birthday party! I may add red onions and some actual cucumbers next time. We are still snacking on the left overs, lol. My son comes begging when he sees me eating it.

    My husband and I absolutely loved this potato salad. I couldn't find the cucumber dressing, but found Kraft dill dressing and used it instead of the dressing called for and I skipped the dill. Added 2 chopped eggs and added red onions chopped. It was delicious!!!!

    This is one of the best potato salads that I have ever tasted. I made it for a goodbye party at work and everyone loved it.

    Absolutely the BEST potato salad I've ever made or eaten. The dill gives it that extra twang that's savored after every bite.

    I down-sized the salad to make 10 servings and added 2 chopped hard cooked eggs, pureed cucumber to the salad dressing mixture and chopped cucumber to the potato mixture. I also garnished the salad with Paprika.
