“I like a potato salad that isnt watery, too sweet, too sour, etc. This is a great side dish or late nite snack. I have made this same recipe for yrs and it goes over very well. I have replaced the sugar in the recipe with Splenda because of diabetic restrictions and sugar usually makes it watery, Splenda works great. Feel free to adjust the ingredients to taste. I like mine with a "punch" from the mustard so less than what is called for in the recipe may be better for you.”
