Rated as 4.17 out of 5 Stars

"Living in southern Germany, this is one recipe that I had to get before we got back to the States. This style of potato salad is served at every restaurant and is in all the grocery stores. I got this recipe from one of my German friends, so this is an authentic German potato salad and tastes excellent!"

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This recipe is excellent warm or cold. It is usually eaten with German sausage, and is great for any family gathering. Typically in southern Germany, this potato salad is served in a salad. That's right, in a salad! It was always my favorite surprise at the end of my salad. I could not wait to get to the potato salad at the bottom. Hopefully you will enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

I remember eating German Potato Salad at a friend's house and it had much more flavor than this. I was disappointed by the blandness of this recipe.

Really good although I would change a few things on here. Whole grain mustard is much better. As gigi said Apple cider vinegar. Cook the bacon. Cook the sweet onion in the bacon grease. Add ever...
