Sunday, October 22, 2017
A little switch for me with German Potato Salad! I have made this salad for more than 20 years and if you love spuds this is a delicious salad that any potato lover will enjoy.
One of my favorite side dishes! German potato salad is a tangy creamy salad that goes with any meal you make it's also addicting. Once you make this old fashioned recipe, you will crave it again and again!

Really an acquired taste



Growing up in an all Italian household, this was quite a change from all the tomato saucy recipes.


I really didn't start out liking this style potato salad and was use to potato salad with mayo on it or the Italian dressing like mom made originally.



Dad would never get accustomed to this, later on as I grew up I missed this taste for side dishes and dug out mom's recipe.

A Great Change In Taste



This potato salad is a great side dish with any meats.


This especially goes well with meats like bratwurst and any kind of smoked sausage.


Easy preparation and bursting with that bacon and salt and vinegar taste.

Love the Tangy Flavors!




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!

Very Old Recipe




This has been my go to recipe since I was 11 years old and learned how to cook with mom.


I can't believe how many years have gone by and this recipe never fails me.


The perfect compliment of flavors with any meats.

Salt and Vinegar



I actually like this dish better the next day, the flavors get stronger and I love the salt and vinegar combination.


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.

A Great Side Dish!



This German Potato salad is actually comfort food for me.


I love that it's warm and has bits of egg in it. I just love the old world style cooking.


This is worth the little effort it takes to make.


My son Chad loves this and asks for this often.

German Potato salad is a favorite no matter what it is served with.


If you like salt and vinegar potato chips. you will love this dish as that's what this taste like to me!


We just love German Potato Salad and all kinds of potato recipes, maybe you remember my potato bread or my Italian potato salad?

If you are looking for a great recipe on how to make German Potato Salad, this is it.


When Mom found this recipe in the 1970's and made it, I wasn't crazy about these flavors until I had it a few times.


Then it became a nice change to regular potato salad.


The crispy bacon and boiled eggs makes it super delicious with that tangy sauce.

Eggs and Bacon



I actually add more of each that the recipe calls for, who doesn't love bacon and eggs?


The hard boiled eggs makes it even creamier with the yolks chopped up and blended into the sauce.


The bacon fat gives this a fantastic flavor, we never changed the recipe but you can.


Some folks like their potato salad with leftover spiral ham or any other smoked pork meats.


The recipe was adapted from the Better Homes and Garden Cookbook from the early 1960's or 1970 something, one of their first books.
