    A Nice Change

    Bev Traxler from Lone Butte, BC

    This recipe is a nice change from your regular potato salad. The red pepper and green beans add texture and taste. I also included four boiled eggs and with the summer ahead, will definately be making this recipe again.

    great side dish

    courtney vance from Fort worth, TX

    This potato salad is great as a side dish with an everyday dinner (like pork chops!). but, may want to add extra mustard...

    Zesty Potato Salad

    Karen Hill from Lava hot springs, ID

    What I like about this recipe is the fact that it takes much less time to prepare than standard potato salad. Having potatoes cooked the day before makes this a last minute dish.

    I used drained canned peas instead of green beans. It was pretty good and very filling, and looked very attractive. It would make a good potluck dish.

    Refreshing Potato Salad

    Henry Ackerman from Thornhill, ON

    A new twist for a summer time Potato Salad. Innovative, refreshing and inexpensive, with a slide “French” flavor. I add some mayonnaise and tasted great. I will definitely make this recipe again!!!

    Healthy Choice

    Nancy Oltman from HASTINGS, NE

    This recipe is not only tasty, but very healthy. I am a diabetic so watch carbs and fat content. Red potatoes are the least starchy potato and of course the instant dried milk is low in fat. For all of that, the taste is fantastic--the best of both worlds.

    zesty potato salad

    Beckye Balderas from ROYSE CITY, TX

    This was wonderful. For a little bit of a different taste try it with the butter potatoes, or you can use half red and half butter potatoes for the color. I loved the seasoning.

    WOW

    Kimberly Drinkwine from WICKENBURG, AZ

    I'm not much of a salad eater because I don't like mayo or vinegar, so that leaves out most salad dressings. This was a great change of pace for potato salad. I really enjoyed it.

    A little time consuming, but good.

    DEBRA CHINWORTH from KENNESAW, GA

    Awesome Potato Salad Recipe

    Marsha Downie from Washington State

    I just wanted to say that this potato salad is so delicious!! I made it for us at the lake to share among our friends and everyone just loved it. It is so different from the usual way of potato salad but just as good. I had never heard of having green beans in a salad such as this but it was absolutely great! I did add a few things to this recipe and as a mistake I used mayonnaise in place of cream cause I had forgotten to get the cream at the store. It still worked out grand though.

    Jodean Myers from GIRARD, OH

    This is wonderful my family is not big on mayo so this works out great for a potato salad. On hot days this is just the perfect touch to any light meal from steaks to hamburgers and hot dogs. I took this to work for a picnic and it was gone before the other potato salads!

    This is so easy to make and is great for a bar-b-que or with the Ladies Luncheon. Although my family like it with mayonnise they were willing to try it. The grandkids didn't like the green beans in it. Will make it again. :)

    GREAT no cook dinner!

    Ms. Blaschuk from FARMINGDALE, NY

    We had this for dinner last night. I had some left over ham from the night before which I cut into small cubes and added to this salad. WOW! It was sensational. The first thing my husband said after looking at 'dinner' was, "I DO NOT NEED TO EAT ANOTHER FAT FILLED THING COVERED WITH MAYONAISE" - wasn't he surprised?! No mayo. By the way, he LOVED it! The milk and dijon dressing was such a nice change and the addition of the ham made it a great meal. This will be a family staple from now on!

    I received this in my email this morning and made it for lunch. I had all the ingredients already for another kind of potato salad, but made this one instead.

    Wanda Moss from ROSENBERG, TX

    This was a real taaster. The honey-dijon mustard really gave it a kick. And the greens with the potatoes gave a good balance of nutrients. I love salads and this will be put on my favorite list especially since I added aa few sprinkles of tony chachere to enhance the 'kick'.

    Potato Salad

    J. E. Cash from ARLINGTON, MA

    There's two ways to make this. One as the recipe as written and for those of us who need our mayo in our potato salad by adding that ingredient to the basic recipe. Good both ways. I don't particularly like beans so I added uncooked frozen peas (thawed of course) and they were great in this recipe.
