    Great potato salad to take to a party because it's mustard based instead of mayo. Great for calorie counting too. I think it's DELICIOUS! - 7/19/09

  • This was a HUGE hit at my barbecue. I never make these things instead relying on store bought for the ease. Yet it was really quite easy. Use the little red potatoes. It makes it much easier for there is no peeling involved. - 8/19/12

  • This was great! I did reduce the vinegar as one of the other reviewers had mentioned. When I make a vinaigrette I usually have the same amount of vinegar or lemon juice as the oil. Matter of taste I guess. - 6/5/11

  • Delicious, and it's a bit more upscale than the usual potato salad. I will definitely make this again. My husband loved it. - 7/29/10

  • I loved this recipe. It's easy to make and keeps well for several days. As someone else said, it's great for picnics and bbqs because it's not mayo-based. Also much lighter than mayo recipes. Next time I make it I'm going to try grilling the potatoes to add an extra punch to it. - 7/2/10

  • I nearly follow this recipe to the 'T'. Rather than straight dijon, I use a Grey Poupon's Mild & Creamy since that is always what I have on hand. I absolutely love this and can't wait to share it with others. - 3/30/10

    I still like my old fashioned Potato salad with Mayo as I do not like mustard. I also put lots of different veggies in it too, it has lots of color and you can always mash a few potatoes to add to the mayo the make it a thicker dressing. Just my opinion, not a mustard person. - 3/20/10

  • I loved this potato salad soooooo much. The only change I made was splitting the recipe in half since we have a family of 3. I can't wait to make again..I even shared a link to this recipe on facebook. - 3/16/10

  • I thought this was great. I'm not sure my husband can wrap his brain around potato salad without mayo so he wasn't as impressed. I will make it for my next potluck at work! - 9/13/09

  • This recipe is fantastic! Very low calorie and no mayonnaise. Great for a summer picnic !! There's a little too much red wine, for my personal liking, so I simply reduced the amount. I put it in the oven after mixing all the ingredients, then added the parsley, which made it tastier. YUM! - 8/27/09
