    TeresaS's Note:

    This is one of those true German recipes. My dear MIL is a "true" German. Trying to get measurements from her is like pulling teeth. I have made this for DH for 34 years now. I still throw it together without measuring so today while preparing it I tried to eyeball the amounts. Hope it works for you and that it is enjoyed. There is no sugar included like most potato salads. DH does like mayo on the side.

      I found this to be blan. It was easy enough to make but I expected more after reading all the reviews. I served it after about 9 hrs of refrigeration. It tasted a little better the next day but definitely not what I expected.

      I give this recipe 5 stars. It was fantastic. Very nice change from traditional potato salad with mayo. I will most certainly make this again and again. Didn't change a thing. Measurements were perfect. Thanks Teresa for sharing.

      I made this recipe for the first time to serve at a tailgate prior to a Michigan football yesterday. I had six guests, five of which are from Germany. They all said my "Hausgemachter Deutscher Kartoffelsalat" was "lecker!!" THIS RECIPE IS PERFECT. Follow it precisely, and you will not be disappointed.
