This is "German Potato Salad" in my book! My Dad who was born in Germany, made this often while I was growing up. He was a Chef but never left us with instrustions. I tried many recipes but this is it! I made this last night. I nearly cried, it brought back so many memerories and tasted sooooo good. I didn't change a thing. I used red potatoes and cider vinegar. It tates better warm or at room temp. Thank you for bringing back the good memories of the past.

My oh my, this was gooood! Make sure you don't overcook your potatoes for this one. We like ours sliced thin so the flavors get to the core of the potatoes. Really yummy to the tummy! We like it just as well at room temp as cold!

Very tasty. I had never had potato salad that wasn't creamy. This one is much lighter but doesn't lose anything in terms of taste. The potatoes make their own creamy texture. The Hormel bacon bits rehydrate and you would never know they were Hormel. Thank you.

VERY good. The only thing I changed was browning some bacon instead of the bits. A little more authentic this way. I have used a recipe of my mom's for german potato salad up til now, but this one was better and not as vinegar-y. We liked it warm, but I snuck a bit when it was cold and iy was still yummy. Thanks for posting. This one will be in my keeper box.
