Real German Potato Salad - Direct from My Friend in Frankfurt's

Real German Potato Salad - Direct from My Friend in Frankfurt's created by Kim127

I adopted this recipe from Recipezaar as it didn't have a loving home. I haven't yet been able to make it, but since I am German and generally like a good German potato salad, I thought I would put my name on this great looking recipe! ;) If you make it before I get a chance, please let me know what you think!

    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
