Personal Notes:
White potatoes get mushy if overcooked & when stirred mash down quicker. Red don't break down as easy & are sweeter. If you cook potatoes the night before, don't peel, but drain, cover & refrigerate overnite, they're easier to peel & cut. In salad dressing & mustard mix, don't pour too much pickle juice at one time or it will overpower the salad & taste like a pickle dish not a potato dish. Start with small amounts & add gradually to taste. If you prepare salad the night before it gives the dish time for the flavors to combine & tastes better.
