"This is a different potato salad for those who don't want a mayonnaise-based recipe. My family has enjoyed this for many years, and it is easy to adapt by adding more spices that suit your family."

white potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
cider vinegar, divided
ground black pepper
We liked the dressing, and it has a good balance of sweet and sour. Followed the recipe to the letter, and we were happy with the taste, but there are just a couple things I will do differently in the future. I will cook the potatoes whole, leaving the skins on, and then cube. That’s just the way I cook potatoes for potato salad, and I like the texture a little better, just a personal preference. There’s absolutely no color in the finished potato salad, and I think visually it ends up looking kind of bland...which it isn’t. I garnished with chopped parsley which I think helped, maybe adding a little chopped celery would be good, but leaving the skins on will add some color, as will some crumbled cooked bacon which is the next thing I definitely will add. This is a really easy potato salad to make, and it comes together quickly. While the potatoes are cooking, go ahead and make your dressing, so you’re good to go when the potatoes are cooked. One other thing to mention, this is good served warm or chilled. Thanks KFREESE for sharing your family’s long-time recipe.
Pretty good recipe, though we felt it needed a lot more salt. I also followed the masses and added fresh chopped Parsley to the finished product.
I love this potato salad! After years of eating mayonnaise based potato salad,my husband and I decided to try this as a way of eating healthier. This is even better ; now we will never go back!!
