This is a creamy German-style potato salad with a tremendous flavor given from Asian ingredients! I made this up on a whim and everyone loved it. I add ham, but feel free to leave it out - it won't alter the flavor much, just the texture.

This is a great alternative to old-fashioned potato salad. The flavors blend well together and is actually easier to make than traditional. Even though the ingredients for the dressing sound strange it is good and not too spicy. I think a little crumbled bacon would be excellent in it. Read More

Something (I'm guessing the 1 tsp of tumeric) made this very bitter. Plus there was no "sweet" factor as one would think should be there with german potato salad. I was hoping for a sweet/hot combination. Read More

We just didn't care for this. The flavor of the dressing with the potatoes and the combination of textures just didn't work for us. It wasn't much like a German potato salad but wasn't quite Asian either. YMMV! Read More

This salad tastes better the second day and it was great the first day! I didn't use the oil ham or hot sauce. I liked this for a change of pace! Read More
