Tangy Potato Salad

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by BeckyD in Tennessee

This is my Mamaw's recipe for potato salad. It has a nice little tang to it and I haven't found another potato salad that I like as much.

This is definitely different than any other potato salad I've tried, it reminded me a little of a German potato salad. I think the amount of sugar was too much for my tastes, in the future I would cut back to half a cup. Other than being too sweet, the combinations of flavors were good. Thanks for the recipe.
