    this was a different style of potato salad, which was good cuz I was going to a picnic where I thought there just might be too much potato salad. It was gobbled up pretty quick!

    Oh my goodness! This is soooooo good. I just made it and couldn't wait until it chills for supper tonight, so I tasted it. Awesome!

    I thought this potato salad was exceptional. I don't think that you have to wait that long to chill it though. I made each component and chilled them all at the same time that way in two hours everything was done. This had a creamy texture and nice little zest to it with the Italian dressing and horseradish. I will definitely make this again!

    Potato salad was very tasty and definitely a keeper for us. However, I measured 2lbs of potatoes exactly and I had way too much dressing for the potatoes. I like extra creamy potato salad, so my preference was not the issue. Next time I'll cut back on the dressing ingredients by 1/3.
