Amish Potato Salad Recipe

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 3 pound Yukon Gold potatoes (cubed into ¾ inch pieces)
  • ⅓ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs (hard boiled and peeled)
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • ½ teaspoon celery seed
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • 1 celery rib (finely chopped)


Hard boil the eggs and set them aside to cool.
Place the potatoes in a large kettle. Cover the potatoes with water to about 1 inch over the top of the potatoes, and stir in 1 tablespoon of salt. Bring the potatoes to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook until potatoes are just tender.
While potatoes are cooking in a small bowl mix together the vinegar and sugar. Place the mixture in the microwave and cook for about 30 seconds or until the sugar is dissolved. (You can also do this on the stove top) pour the mixture into a food processor or blender and add 1 egg yolk, (reserve the egg white) ½ teaspoon salt, mustard, celery seeds, and process until smooth. Place the mixture into a medium size bowl.
Drain the potatoes and place them in a large bowl. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the dressing mixture over the top and gently toss them to mix in the dressing. Place the potatoes in the refrigerator to cool. Cool for at least 30 minutes stirring 1 more time during the cooling process to distribute the dressing.
Mix the sour cream into the rest of the dressing. Add the rest of the eggs, and reserved egg white into the mixture and then using a potato masher - mash until eggs are in small pieces.
Gently toss the dressing and celery into the potatoes, salt and pepper to taste, cover and refrigerate until cold.
