Greetings all! :-) Thank you for trying my recipe, and for your reviews. This is a good, basic recipe and best when made a day ahead, to allow the flavors to blend. Such fun to read what others have added, mustard, pickles, bacon, radishes, etc. Because everyone's tastes vary, as mentioned in the description, I encourage you to add "additional ingredients" to make this recipe "your own". That's what makes cooking fun. Due to concerns about sodium intake and sodium restricted diets, I did reduce the amount of salt in this recipe, from the amount I normally use. Thus the taste may be a bit bland to some. One thing to remember, because potatoes absorb salt, additional salt may be required in potato salad to obtain the degree of saltiness desired. Have Fun and Happy Cooking! Joslyn

Good, but needed something. I added 2 more eggs and 6 tablespoons of deli mustard and used red onion. Delicious.

Amazing! I add 2-3 tsp dill, parsley, 2-3 tsp of spicy mustard and an extra egg and paprika for the top. i also mix all the spices and mayo in a small bowl, minimizing the mixing of the potatoes. Great recipe. The inlaws (in sweden) are in love with this and have asked for the recipe! thanks a bunch!!
