November 03, 2012: I think you really need to double this recipe because it is to die for! I love smelling the vinegar mixture as it cooks. Very easy to make. Thank you for posting and I'll be making this again. Made for Fall PAC 2012 ......UPDATE: My son asked me to make this again already. So on Nov 6th, I boiled 5 pounds of potatoes and tripled the vinegar dressing. The amount of potatoes to vinegar was perfect. We really like this recipe!! Thank you for posting it.
