    Chef Porkpie's Note:

    This is a delicious dish served hot or cold. I loved it as a child but never learned how to make it until recently. As I usually do, I studied about 20 different recipes I found on Recipezaar and incorporated my favorite aspects of each recipe into my own version. I added one ingredient on my own because I felt it was necessary...GARLIC.

      This was a good recipe as far as taste for german potato salad. But, if you are used to a traditional potato salad , try it in a small batch before making the full recipe. this did have a strong vinegar taste. it was tasty to me, but the rest of my family didnt care for it as much. the only change i made was i sauteed my celery with the bacon when i added my onion into it just to take a little of the crunch off.

      This is sooooo good, I was wanting a German style potato salad for a picnic we had and this turned out to be IT!! Followed the directions exactly, used half red and half russet potatoes, did not peel as I like the added color and did add 2 hard cooked eggs to the mix and one for topping it off. My onion was a Walla Walla Sweet and the it really set this off. Served with smoked chicken, fresh bass just caught that day, grilled corn on the cob and garden fresh tomatoes slices with fresh basil, balsalmic vinager and olive oil. A bottle of Washington red wine and for desert Pineapple Upside Down Bundt Cake a perfect dinner and not a bit of this salad was left. Thanks Chef Porkpie for a recipe I'll be using over and over.
