    This is best served hot, but equally good cold! This is an authentic german recipe...everyone says it is the best! It is also great cooked ahead of time and then microwaved...it gives the flavors time to blend.

      A truly great German Potato Salad! Made half recipe this morning before going to work and the one little bite I snuck in before packing up left me wishing lunch time would hurry up and come. I made using rust potatoes because that is what I had on hand and used a nice red onion. Thanks for the great salad.

      Excellent and very easy. Not too syrupy or vinegar-y, just what the doctor ordered. I sliced my red potatoes before boiling them and they didn't fall apart and looked pretty. Thanks for the keeper!

      I made this for an Oktoberfest party. Actually, I made it twice - once with and once without bacon (for myself and other vegetarians). It was awesome, even without the bacon, and our guests raved about the meat version. I made it the evening before the party, and I'm glad I did. The overnight time in the fridge really helped the flavors to blend well. One tip: if you are also planning to make this as a vegetarian dish, add an extra half and onion or so, and really caramelize the onions (low heat for a good 45 minutes). It ups the flavor and tastes amazing.

      Thanks for a great recipe!
