I have been looking for a German Potato salad like one DH and I once had in a German restaurant (our first German Potato Salad experience) and absolutely loved. It turned out that this wasn't it, so I'll still be looking, but this was very good too. It was very quick and easy. The directions did not specify what shape the potatoes were to be (whole, sliced, cubed...etc.), so I sliced them to duplicate my original experience. Thanks for sharing this recipe Charlotte.
I love German potato salad. I liked this recipe as it was simple to put together, no weird ingredients, just stuff I had around the house. Wasn't sure if I was to peel the potatoes or not, but I chose to do so and I also sliced them up. I am use to a little creamier sauce on the potatoes and know it is not mayo, but not sure what it is, but this was still great tasting recipe.
DH & I found this to be too sweet for our taste. I suppose we like more of a vinegar and/or mustard flavor. Not your fault, it is just our taste buds that couldn't get behind this recipe. I am sure that we will be the minority.
As a child, I really enjoyed my German grandmother's cooking - including her potato salad - but I have no family recipes, so I was really pleased to try this one and find it to be SO delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, and I wouldn't change a thing. So Charlotte J, thank you so much for sharing this recipe! I've made this for the 2006 ZWT Salad Challenge!
Made this yesterday for a dinner with friends and got raves.Great combination of flavors! Because I used several more small, red-skinned potatoes, I used double the amount of flour and potato water but left the rest of the ingredient amounts the same- turned out great and I gave out the recipe to several of my friends.Thanks for a delicious recipe!
