Park Deli Potato Salad

Park Deli was the place for the best sandwiches and salads growing up.
Their potato salad was a favorite.
It's a simple potato salad with just a few ingredients.
It's tangy and creamy and so good with a sandwich.
5 or 6 medium red potatoes
1/2 sweet onion, grated
1/3 cup water
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 cup good mayonnaise
Add potatoes to a large pot and fill with cold water and 1 tsp. salt.
Bring to a boil and simmer until potatoes are fork tender, about 30 minutes.
Let cool slightly and peel.
Grate onion into a medium size bowl.  Add water, vinegar, salt and sugar.
Whisk to combine.

Slice warm potatoes about 1/4" thick.  Place in a large bowl.
Pour onion, vinegar mixture over warm potatoes.
Let sit approximately 10 minutes so that the potatoes can absorb some of the liquid.
There will be a little liquid left.  This is what makes this salad so nice and creamy.
Add mayonnaise and stir gently so not to break up the potatoes.
Chill for at least two hours.
