"Have made many potato salad recipes but this is our new favorite! Did substitute dill pickles for the olives other than that followed the recipe. The celery seed adds another level of flavor. Definitely reminded me of days gone by. Made 1 day ahead."

"Just like my mother made when I was a kid. We make this recipe for every outing in the summer and if there is any leftovers we all fight for some to take home. It has a a perfect blend of celery and egg."
