Amish potato salad is a tangy, slightly sweet version of potato salad that will be welcome at any barbecue or picnic. Made popular by Walmart ®, it gets tang and color from apple cider vinegar and yellow mustard and a touch of sweetness from pickle relish and a dash of sugar. Some of the potatoes get blended in with the dressing to give the salad the chunky-yet-creamy texture that we love.



  1. Place the potatoes into a pot and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Season generously with salt. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat to medium and continue to cook until the potatoes are tender, about 5 minutes.
  2. While the potatoes are cooking, begin the dressing. Combine the vinegar and sugar in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cook until the sugar has dissolved, about 30 seconds. Add the mixture to a food processor along with the mustard, celery seed and the yolk of 1 of the hard-boiled eggs. Pulse until combined.
  3. Drain the potatoes and add to a large bowl. Toss together with 2 tablespoons of the dressing and reserve the remaining dressing in the food processor. Chill the potatoes in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  4. Finish the dressing by adding the mayonnaise, 1/2 teaspoon salt, remaining 2 eggs plus the egg white and 1 cup of the potatoes, reserving the remaining potatoes for the salad. Process until smooth yet with some texture remaining.
  5. Mix the reserved potatoes with the dressing along with the celery, onion and relish. Taste for seasoning.
