      I've been using the same recipe passed on from my grandmother who was born and raised Amish. This is the BEST potatoe or macaroni salad dressing ever.

      I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup and use white vinegar when I make this salad dressing. I have been making this salad dressing for over a year now and use it instead of commercial salad dressing in all of my cooking.

      I think I had it in my head that this would taste more like a commercial salad dressing, but it really didn't. I think this dressing would be used more for a potato salad or maybe a pasta salad vs using it on a sandwich. I would cut back on the vinegar by half as it really was a predominate taste, however in a potato salad it would be fantastic as this is just the taste I would be looking for. Tangy and sweet. I had always wanted to try homemade salad dressing, and I'm glad I did. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Nick's Mom
