    Due to an allergy, I substituted pickles in place of celery. I also decided to use pickle juice instead of white vinegar. The recipe was delicious, and I'm sure would be just as great made as-is.

    This did not turn out well. Flavor was definitely lacking. With so many potato salad recipes around this one is not worth a try.

    Flavors are VERY good. Too much mayo for my taste had to add in some more potatoes. Next time I make it I will only use 1 c Mayo
