How to Make Amish Potato Salad
Boiling your potatoes in a stock pot on the stove will work just as well, and can be made just as easy!
You’ll find the full recipe at the end of this post, but I’d love to walk you through with photos in case you love the step-by-step tutorial too!
Cut the Red Potatoes
Cut your potatoes into bite-sized pieces, and place into the Instant Pot.
Add in the Chicken Stock
Pour in the chicken stock, secure the lid of the Instant Pot, close the steam vent, and set to manual high for 4 minutes.
If Making Without the Instant Pot
In a stock pot, bring water to a boil, add potatoes and reduce to a simmer. Cook for 8-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender. (Not mushy!) Drain and set aside.
While cooking, or once the potatoes are finished, chop the hard-boiled eggs, onion, celery, and red pepper into small pieces. Add to cooked potatoes.
Potato Salad “Dressing”
In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, mustard, sweet relish, milk, salt, and celery seed. Stir until thoroughly combined.
Add dressing mix to potatoes, carefully stir a few times while pouring, making sure to coat all of the potatoes.
Chill and Serve!
Chill and store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
