    Very good. I did not have celery seed though.
    Made this last summer and my parents and family raved about it. Pulling it out for Easter this year... thanks so much! This is a gem of a recipe and I’m real happy I found it. Simple, hearty and totally delicious

    It tastes amazing and the crunch of the celery is perfect. It is a lot of boiling and chopping but so worth it. Also makes a ton of potato salad which is a plus.

    Skipped the celery seed just bc I didn’t have any. Turned out super yummy, kept going back to the fridge to grab more after dinner. Will use this again.

    It turned out well and was well liked at a BBQ. I added Dill Weed to the recipe instead of celery seed as I didn’t have it on hand.

    Made this for a birthday celebration, everyone enjoyed it. I added green onions and used champagne vinegar, otherwise, followed the directions. I will use this recipe anytime I make potato salad

    Amazing!! When they say it’s the “Best Potato Salad” they were right!!! Super easy, simple, and delicious. I added a little aioli and it took it up a notch.

    This potato salad is bomb. Super easy but the vinegar and celery seed set it off. I peeled some of the skin off after they cooked, but some remained. Can’t wait to have this with Ribs in Tahoe over the 4th!!!

    This turned out really delicious, very close to how my nana used to make it. I was skeptical about adding onion but I am glad that I did. I also added parsley and a little bit of Kens ranch dressing.
