  • this sounds yummy and i can't wait to try it, but i was wondering if the carbs listing is correct? 5.4 g of carbs for a potato based recipe seems very low to me. - 1/17/10

  • Great recipe! I don't like mayo-based dressings for any of my salads, so this is a welcome addition to my recipe box. - 7/21/09

  • I thought this was pretty good. It reminded me of the recipe my mother used to make when I was a child. It took some getting used to for the rest of the family. The vinegar kinda through them off. Still good. - 5/8/08
