Mom's Danish Potato Salad
40 mins (prep 30, cooking 10)
15 ingredients
8 servings
A easy-to-make inexpensive potato salad. The homemade dressing for this is really good and I feel what makes it so good, and works equally well with macaroni salad. This is my mom's recipe, and her mom made it before her. I use about 6 hard-boiled eggs because I like my potato salad with more eggs. The prep and cook time is only a estimate, as I've never timed how long it takes to make this. If you use mayo instead of Miracle Whip I'd suggest starting with only 1 T. sugar and adding more to taste as mayo is sweeter than Miracle Whip. And of course please feel free to adapt this recipe ingredient-wise to your familie's preferences.
