Amish Potato Salad
I love having a picnic. Well, let me change that. I love picnic food. One of my favorites is Amish Potato Salad. Oh, it is so good. It is just like regular potato salad but it has a little more tang and sweetness to it. That might sound odd, but it is a great combination. It is much like Amish macaroni salad. What causes Amish potato salad Amish? It is the tanginess caused by a little bit of vinegar and the sweetness is just a small amount of sugar. When these flavors combine, OH! it is heavenly. This potato salad also contains mustard, which adds a little tang as well. This is my all-time favorite potato salad recipe and it is a dish that I always bring to the picnic.
Just Like Walmart Amish Potato Salad
My mom used to buy Amish Potato salad at Walmart. I wanted to recreate the Walmart Amish Potato Salad but honestly, I wanted to make it better. I started testing more Amish potato salad recipes and decided to take the dressing that I use for my Amish macaroni salad as the base. It worked. The end result is amazing.
