German style food is not something I grew up eating and even now I wouldn't say it's something that either Hubs or I have a well-developed palate for. We have been experimenting with it more in recent years and have learned we really enjoy it, particularly when we're talking about recipes like this one. Holy moly, what a salad! No ordinary potato salad this! It does require a little extra effort than most, but it's so worth it. Just right tangy and sweet, with accents of parsley and celery that lend freshness, crunch and flavor. Given I made such a small portion for just the two of us, I was tempted to just toss everything together rather than try and layer it as directed in the recipe. I'm so glad I made it as the submitter intended as I'm sure that was partly why this salad was so beautiful, certainly a sophisticated cut above most potato salads, German potato salads included. If I have one criticism it's that I didn't trust my instincts and use either a Yukon Gold or red potato. I guess I assumed that if that wasn't specified then an ordinary russet was what was intended. Just as I suspected, with the russet I used the slices tended to fall apart. Still, the combination of flavors and ingredients in this salad far and away made up for any disappointment I had with the potato itself.
