You might be wondering, what's the difference between Amish potato salad and regular potato salad?

Amish potato salad is slightly sweeter than regular potato salad. You'll notice below that the recipe actually includes a little bit of sugar in the ingredients list! 

Another fun fact about Amish potato salad is that it's likely that it's not actually Amish. Walmart made this sweeter style of potato salad popular, and many of the recipes found on the internet are actually copies of that Walmart version.

But, no matter where this style of potato salad came from, we're glad that it's here! It's delicious and perfect for any occasion.

My friend made this potato salad for a recent potluck and it was so good! I went back for seconds :) I normally only eat my mom's famous potato salad, but this one is a close second!

I now have a new favorite go-to potato salad! Yummy!
