|A half-recipe makes a large amount--this is just what was left over. :)|
I've had this recipe for quite awhile and have made it for many carry-ins and family get-togethers. Everyone but my son likes it. :) People are always asking for the recipe, so here it is!
The funny thing about this to me is that I don't think I got the recipe from any of my former Amish neighbors, who wrote their recipes longhand on recipe cards or index cards (oh, yes, I remember them fondly when I see their neatly-written cards in my recipe boxes). This Amish Potato Salad recipe is printed out on computer printer paper! Hmmmm . . .
But it is very Amish-like, simple yet delicious, with sugar in the dressing to give it some sweetness that balances very well with the vinegar and mustard.
Well, here goes!
