Made half the recipe this morning and tried a few bites still warm. Yum! I used celery salt in place of the seeds and salt. The dressing had a sweet-sour taste like brocolli salad dressing. Chilled it well and enjoyed it with leftover chilled Roast Chicken Breasts With Parsley Pan Gravy for a nice picnic lunch. Thanks for posting Vicki. Made for Zwizzle Chicks for ZWT6. Edited 6/26: I made this with 1 lb sea shell macaroni, red onion, and 3 eggs. Made the dressing as posted and chilled it overnight. I had a sample for breakfast and it was fantastic! This is for a BBQ today and I am looking forward to it!

Ya got the Zesties too! Loved this. The sugar was an excellent addition, especially after not having it before in potato salad. I had some celery from the garden and added that too. Great salad, and one I can use lots! Made for ZWT 6 Zesties!

I'm with my friend, PottyPie. Very, very similar to the potato salad that has been a staple in our family. The only difference was the addition of the sugar. I loved this served next to the baked beans I made. They just cried out to each other! Thnx for sharing your recipe, Vicki. Made for a fellow Voracious Vagabond in ZWT 6.

This is a wonderful potato salad suited just to my family's tastes. It's tastes very much like mine my Grams taught me to make when I was just a kid. I cut down the celery seeds to about half a teaspoon because I added fresh chopped celery for some crunch, (with the leaves, too!) I also halved the mustard, I don't usually use it in my salad. It was surely yummy on Father's Day with brats, dogs and fresh fruit salad! ZWT6. Thanks Vicki!

This is a great potato salad. Probably the best I have ever made. I cut the recipe in half, since it's just my hubby and me and we ate it for two meals. I omitted the onions (personal preference) and it was still perfect! Made for ZWT6.

Wonderful, old-fashioned potato salad. I halved the recipe, but added an extra egg, and mashed the yolks with the mayo and seasonings the way my mom used to. I used half dill and half sweet relish, and added a little green pepper and crumbled bacon. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT6.

Great potato salad! I also added a small bit of celery and used less celery seed. A true classic in every way. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 6.

This is an especially nice recipe for those who don't like celery and for those who don't have celery on hand, but want to make potato salad. I did cut back on the celery seeds and will probably add some celery the next time. Thanks for sharing. This is a keeper. PS. Gets even better on the second and third days.
