One of my favorite side dishes!

German Potato Salad #potato #salad #german #food

I love this as a side dish but personally I like it so much I can really eat this as a meal. It really is so delicious and full of flavor. Once you try it you will always crave it if you like salt and vinegar flavors!

This has been my go to recipe since I was 11 years old and learned how to cook. I found it in a newspaper clipping back

 I can't believe how many years have gone by and this recipe never fails me. The perfect compliment of flavors with any meal.

My kids love it and ask for this side dish more than any other potato dish I make! It's really fabulous.

Not hard easy to do and full of flavors. The longer it sets the better. I like to make it the day before I serve it and let the flavors meld together.
