    I'm making this tomorrow. I do mine like yours except I mash the potatoes first and don't use powdered mustard but use extra hot dog mustard to make it a bit more yellow. It's been a while since I made it so can't remember if I put parsley in it.

    Your salad seems simple, easy, and delicious.  The way I like it. To my potato salads I always add one onion, bell pepper, celery, and cucumber, all finely chopped. Topped with fresh parsley and dill. For me potato salad is not the side dish, but the meal itself.
