This was my first try at German potato salad and I though it was very good. I did make minor alterations. I used "better than bullion" from costso instread of bullion as that is what I had. I did not add oil. I also ate it the night I made it, so I only let it sit for an hour or so. It was supper yummy! I imagine the leftovers will be even better.

Oh my Stars!!! I lived in Ansbach, Germany many years ago, and I used to eat the best potato salad I had ever had in a restaurant there. I have been looking for a recipe like it since those many years ago, and I found it with this one!!! This potato salad is WONDERFUL!! Thank you so much for sharing it. I hope I can keep from eating it up until my family gets some of it... C.Ann

This recipe is, without a doubt, the BEST duplication of the Kartoffelsalat from the region of Germany where we lived. The only change I made was replacing celery with finely chopped fresh parsley. Thank you, thank you, Marianna!

I wanted to get a picture of this but it was pretty much devoured before I could snap it. It has a real dill pickle taste and although I am not a fan of the hot version everyone else at the bar b que (15 people) thought it was the best. I used red potatoes although I think they Idaho would have been better its just what I had. I used 8 chicken bullion cubes. The only change from the recipe was that I added albout 1lb of bacon and used the drippings rather than the oil as called for. Just couldn't bring myself to use the oil. I put it in the crockpot and let it sit on the counter overnight as directed, did not refridgerate which was a little uneasy for me but did it. The next day put it on "keep warm" in the crockpot for three hours before feasting on it. This just kept getting better and better as the day went on with people going back and getting another scoop. So, it looks harder than it is and is very forgiving as stated. Will make again, thanks for making me a good german girl and sharing this recipe!
