This was a very good patato salad. I've never tried it hot before. Just a suggestion...use red potatoes because they don't fall apart as easily as brown potatoes. It still tastes good when the potatoes are crumbled put if you're looking for presentation points I'd use red!!
This is a mediocre recipe; it would serve as a good base to try, then alter to your own liking. I found the proportions to be off. The "dressing" made by this recipe was enough for 6 medium sized potatoes (not 9). As a result, the salad was enough for about 7 or 8 conservative servings (not 12). I was surprised to see that one reviewer suggested using less vinegar. I thought the salad was rather bland and needed 2-4 more tablespoons of vinegar (I like a German potato salad that makes you pucker!). Not a complete loss, but not the 5-star recipe I was hoping for.
Super!!!! I am just getting around to rating this and thank you submitter. I have served this many, many times and there is never enough. Currently it's my favorite item to bring to parties. I do add more bacon (because we love bacon) and I make more sauce than called for but no one can go wrong with your directions. Thanks again.
My dad was saying it's been years since he had German potato salad and he really missed it,so I thought I would try my hand at this and surprise him. Wow! Was it good! I boiled my potatoes with skin on,and peeled and sliced when they cooled down a bit(much easier.) I used less potatoes than called for, 8oz. package of bacon,3/4 cup onion and doubled the rest. I like lots of sauce so I gradually added my potatoes to my liking,you can use leftovers for hash browns. Thanks Tequila!
Delicious! I'm a big fan of German potato salad, and this one certainly didn't disappoint. What's great is the addition of the celery seed, gives it a tiny little crunch but a ton of flavor. I always use cider vinegar rather than white but don't know if that makes a huge taste difference...maybe a bit mellower. I quartered the potatoes to cook them, then made it easy on myself and sliced them with an egg slicer. Perfect size. Also, just before serving, I topped it with a handful of minced fresh parsley which gave it a wonderful fresh flavor boost. This was a great side to my grilled brats from the German butcher. Thanks, Tequila!
Excellent! Very good my husband loved it, though it needs to be a ,little clearer on what sized potatoes I used pretty large ones not thinking it would be too much next time I will use smaller potatoes.Thanks for sharing!
I am full German and I found this to be very true to form. Loved the taste!
Just like Mom used to make when I was a kid, because my father wouldn't allow "that mayonnaise abomination in the house".
I left out the flower because I have a wheat allergy and it came out just great, the trick was letting it sit on the stove for about a half hour after I mixed everything together, and letting the potatoes soak up all the flavor. I cubed it instead of sliced the potatoes because that's what I am used to, and I was searching for a recipe like my mom used to make. This is the real deal, and got the thumbs up from central texas Germans at my Oktoberfest party. Thanks!
