“For a classic potato salad, this is hand's down the best I've ever tasted. It is time consuming, but the end result is definately worth it! This is more of a white color potato salad, don't make the mistake of adding mustard to color it...I tried it once and it ruined the taste...tasted like any other potato salad. This makes lots, but it goes fast!”
