    Quantities just right. I used quail eggs as an alternative. Family crowd pleaser.  -  25 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Yum, easy and not many ingredients- i made some with leftover spring onion and dill, brought it to a bbq and it was a big hit. My go-to for potato salad now!  -  03 Jan 2013  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Altered ingredient amounts. I used yellow American mustard since it is an American style potato salad and I added chopped pimento filled green olives too.  -  10 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
