    This was very good--the only potato salad for us! To avoid the potatoes' increasing my refrigerator's ambient temp, I rinsed them in cold H2o first.
    Added chives, parsley & onions; next time will add celery and/or a bit of broccoli slaw. This only needs some "crunch". I cut the vinegar a bit. YUM! - 6/10/09

    I really messed with this recipe. I only have regular Mayo, so I used low fat cottage cheese for the dressing along with 1 TB sour cream. After mixing it all up, I dished out two servings for myself, then added the egg yolks and a dollop of Mayo to the remainder for my family. They loved it. - 1/23/10

  • Very good! Instead of adding the pickles. I added celery! I also put a little more mustard! Turned out great. I did not have the Fat Free Miracle Whip so I used light.... So good. Thanks - 7/11/11
