Good potato salad, thank you very much.
Seems to be a regional recipe from the Frankfurt area. I will try it next. To the people telling us this is not authentic German potato salad because it contains mayonnaise...I am German and have never eaten a warm Bavarian salad. The recipes are regional, the south seems to have warm salads that are pork fat or vinegar based and the north has mayonnaise based salads.
This was pretty good and reminded my bf of one of his favorites from a German Pub in our neighborhood. For me, it was a bit too saucy, next time I'll add more potatoes to even it out.
We found this salad to be just right. Do make sure you let it sit in the fridge for 4-5 hours so the flavors can blend together and it mellows out the vinegar to where it needs to be!
I made this by following the recipe exactly and it turned out so good. I was a little sceptical about the vinegar, but it really all worked together well. Thanks for sharing this, it's def. going to be added to my recipe collection to cook for my family.
This is worth the effort. I made it with both Mayo then Miracle Whip. The Miracle Whip version was a lot tastier. Joan Loof
I lived in germany for 3 years and never tasted a potato salad there like this one. to me it has too much vinegar. german potato salad has a sweeter taste then this one did
Loved this! Made it as written and it was quick and tasty. Also, I'd like to add that there are several types of authentic German potato salad that tend to vary by region. My family is from southern Germany and many of our handed-down recipes include mayonnaise-based salads. So don't be disappointed!
This might be delish, however, I lived in Germany 3 years when my husband was in the military, and REAL German potato salad IS NOT made with mayonnaise or salad dressing. So, this is not authentic German Potato Salad. Sorry to disappoint you.
We had this along with grilled sausage and brats and everyone enjoyed it! I used mayonnaise in this recipe, as we find Miracle Whip way too sweet for our tastes. I loved the addition of the dill pickle. We will enjoy this recipe often for a change of pace from regular potato salads!
