"This turned out good. I only changed the way I did the potatoes(red), I used the mandoline slicer on thick slices and then I boiled for 5-8 minutes, breaking but not mashing. I did double the recipe and think it could have used a hair more vinegar. Thanks for sharing. I will keep this one in the recipe book."
"I think I made the same mistake as Anniesmom and doubled the potatoes and forgot to double the rest. But they still were so good. Creamy, warm and a great blend flavors that truly complimented each other. We really wanted something differant from the usual mayonaise potatoe salad and this sure was it. Thanks truebrit for posting."
"Loved this taste! I doubled the potatoes, but, forgot to double the rest of the ingredients and it still turned out great! My hard to please 10 year old even asked for seconds! Can't wait to make it again, and the next time, I'll do it the right way!"
"I made to go along with our Recipe #86539, and I can say it went over really well! Everyone enjoyed it and said, "Let's have this one again" so it's a go! The flavors were perfect and the bowl was empty at the end of the meal. (I doubled the amount for 4 of us). Excellent side dish to just about any meal! Thanks for sharing it!"
"We refer to this as "GPS" as in German Potato Salad. Everyone loves it. I don't use the celery seed tho. Thanks for actually giving accurate measurements - I never can share 'cause I never have actually measured how much of each ingredient I use!"
"We loved this potato salad! I've tried other ones like it, but have never found just the right amount of each ingredient balanced to make that perfect flavor...until now! So yummy, DH and I ate the whole batch in one sitting. I will be making this again!"
"Outstanding!! These potatoes were the perfect compliment to our meal this evening with Green Beans Almondine Casserole and grilled chicken. A definite keeper! Thank you Truebrit for sharing this lovely recipe that I'll be making often."
"We really enjoyed this served with Wiener Schnitzel. I was a bit cautious with the vinegar and only added 2 tablespoons of cider vinegar, but we both decided the extra 1/2 tablespoon would not have made it too vinegary. It was easy to make, although I did overcook the potatoes a bit so that the end result was a bit more 'mashed potato-ish' than it should have been. It didn't matter. It was still wonderful and the balance of flavours was perfect."
"Excellent, excellent, excellent! I have tried many German potato salad recipes in the past 15 years but none came close to the delectable dish I had during Christmases as a child. All were way too sweet or way too vinegar-y and none were smokey enough. It's all about balance! This struck the chord of balance. The potato flavor was accented instead of overwhelmed by the flavors of vinegar and sugar. I used cider vinegar and all in the family (some of whom have never had kartoffelsalat) raved. Even the parrot pronounced it "gooood"! I served it with kielbasa, kraut and stewed apples."
