Sweet and Sour Potato Salad


  • 30 small red potatoes; a variation in size from an egg to a walnut – washed, cooked with skin on, whole, in salted water just until tender
  • 1/3 cup onion; chopped fine
  • 1/3 cup celery; chopped fine (about 1 stalk)
  • 4 eggs; hard boiled, chopped
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • Paprika for garnishing

Dressing as follows:

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 egg; slightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

While potatoes are cooking, prepare dressing by combining milk, sugar, egg, vinegar, butter, cornstarch, salt, celery salt, and dry mustard in a saucepan.

Over medium heat while stirring constantly with a whisk cook until mixture begins to bubble and thicken. Remove from heat and cool.

Cut cooled potatoes in fourths. Combine in a bowl with onion, celery, eggs and mayonnaise. Stir in dressing and dust generously with paprika. Refrigerate several hours to allow flavors to blend.
