Tangy Potato Salad

Rated as 4.77 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe came from Germany, where it was passed down through our family. My grandmother made it for me when I was a mother modified it...and I added my own touches. It still has authentic German flavor, and it's in demand for every cookout or potluck we attend!"

3/4 cup broth/mayo is too much, I'd cut it down to 1/2 cup each. I added one of those small jars of diced pimentos and omitted the tomatoes. It's the broth/mayo that makes it so delicious.

My daughter hates anything with mustard, so finding a potato salad flavored with chicken broth was a lucky find. I found this 2 weeks ago and I've already made it twice to rave reviews. Definite...

Mine was extremely watery and I had to drain most of the liquid time I think I'll half the chicken broth. Other than that, I really really enjoyed this. I did skip the tomatoes. Th...
