My Grandma Sneltjes made this potato salad all summer long at the cabin. The secret to its goodness is the dressing you make yourself! This is a big enough recipe to feed a crowd!

  1. In a sauce pan stir together sugar, flour, mustard and salt. Mix in water, vinegar and eggs. Cook over low to medium until thick, letting mixture bubble up a couple of times, stirring constantly.
  2. Pour into a glass jar, seal and refrigerate (this can be done up to a week beforehand).
  3. Boil potatoes. Let cool (sprinkle a little tarragon vinegar on them while cooling) and cut into 1/2" chunks.
  4. Thinly slice entire green onions and mix with home dressing with mayonnaise, then mix in diced onion.
  5. Mix potatoes and diced hard boiled eggs with the dressing.
