This recipe was a total hit with my family gathering last week. I think what you need to keep in mind is the recipe doesn't claim to be "authentic" it's very simple yet the flavor is definitely NOT your ordinary potato salad. I'm making this again this afternoon for a burger and sausage bbq and I can assure you they'll be no leftovers. Thanks for sharing!
While I am not sure I would call this a "German" potato salad we liked it. I didn't fry bacon just used the pre-packaged stuff so I didn't have any bacon grease. I also left out the eggs. Next time I will probably add more olives because I REALLy like what they added to the dish. Thanks for a different potato salad recipe. I will make again.
Love this recipe! I make it for parties BBQ's a side dish to bring to the neighbors house...you name it. People always ask me for the recipe. I'm starting to feel a little protective of it...like a hidden jewel. Sometimes I forget to reserve the bacon grease. Sometimes I add an extra boiled egg. Makes no difference. I've never liked potato salad but this one I can just sit with a bowl and a spoon. Yum!
i was pretty happy with this dish. however i had to make some adjustments for my family. my kids dont like a lot of onion so i reduced that by half. same with the eggs. it went over pretty well with the family... it had some what of an after taste though. i dont know if thats because of the italian seasonings or what. maybe it was just my taste buds!: might make again...
I cut this recipe in half used organic red potatoes used half a package of turkey bacon a mixture of fat free plain yogurt and fat free sour cream omitted the green olives because I didn't have any and used half a recipe of Scotdog's dry ranch dressing mix. After I had my older boy taste it he said "it needs pickles Mom" so I added a couple chopped large garlic dills. Even cutting it down my three boys inhaled it. No leftovers. I had one bite and I thought it was pretty tasty even lowfat. My husband even asked me "Are you SURE it's lowfat". LAWLZ that was a riot. See good food can be lowfat and not kill you.;)
I made this the night before I served it. Everyone raved about it. It was so different from the regular old potato salad. Reminded me of one I had years ago that was made with dill pickles and have tried to duplicate with no success Thanks for a very good recipe.
We liked this! The only thing I think is next time I will use more mayo and less sour cream. I am a fan of both but I felt the sour cream gave it more of a 'flat' flavor. On the upside we loved the addition of the green olives and bacon is ALWAYS a winner in our house lol. I did also need to add salt but that's our preference. I would make this again but with my changes! Thanks for sharing.:)
