Jesse and Anne F. from Bluefield, West Virginia like to make this chunky salad the day before to let the flavors mellow.

Add celery, green pepper, onion, radishes, parsley, salt if desired and pepper; mix well. Combine mayonnaise, mustard and sugar; pour over potato mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Yield: 14 servings.
