    HeidiSue's Note:

    Most German potato salads are made with mayo, but this one is not. It is by far better than any that I have made with mayo. You must try it! We make this to accompany Bobby Flay's Beer-Simmered Bratwurst. Great for a summer party.

      Delicious! I did not have potatoes in the house, but I did have two 1.4 pound bags of Simply Potatoes sliced potatoes. I zapped them for a few minutes in a dish in the microwave, and used them instead of traditional peeling, boiling, slicing potatoes. It was a good speed scratch upgrade and conserved time. This recipe is delicious -- thanks for sharing it HeidiSue!

      This is great.My husbands family is German. They love this twist to an old favorite. It is easy to make. Just follow the directions. I made it for 50 people as a side dish. Its high in calories but you can replace the bacon fat with vegatable oil to cook the onions. I add a little more vineger in its place.
