    It turned out great. I did make some tweaks and adjustments. I did 2 teaspoons of salt instead of one. I did a full cup of sweet onion. I used Apple cider vinegar. I also threw in a spoonful of sweet relish and a spoonful of dill relish, as in the spoon size that you would eat your cereal with. The next time I make this salad I will also back the mayonnaise off and only use one cup instead of one and a half cups. Just my personal taste preferences. I’m eating it right now as I do this review Yum!😁

    Very good, tasted like what I remember of Mom's. Substituted dill pickle juice for the vinegar as that's how I remember her doing. Topped it off with paprika and chopped chives.

    I used honey mustard instead of plain yellow but otherwise followed recipe. Turned out great! I will definitely make it again. My husband loves it. Super easy & quick.

    Delicious tastes like potato salad that doesn’t have all the chemicals and preservatives in it like deli salads have

    Perfect. Reminds me of the homemade potato salad my Mom made when I was young. Was a wonderful side dish with Grilled Grouper Sandwich.
