"Had to come back and say, that the chilled leftovers were even better than the fresh warm salad. YUM!"

"We really liked this recipe. Having it warm really made a difference! I added more salt and some chopped dill pickles. BUT - I don't think I would always make warm potato salad!"

"I've been making this potato salad for years and my recipe came from Better Homes and Gardens "casserole Cook Book" published in 1968. I use 4 cups of the cubed potatoes and serve it with b-sauced ribs - all year long!"
