"A much more traditional German potato salad which, of course, has no mayo. It has tangy, fresh flavors and can be served cold or at room temperature."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I've had many different type German potato salads, but I have never had one with fresh dill in it...but I liked it. Hot/warm potatoes really soak up liquid quickly. I had to add a considerable amount of additional broth and vinegar, so the potatoes were not dried out. I asked my husband to taste after I'd finally mixed all up, and at that point, he said to add more vinegar. When I next make this, I also think I would use bolder apple cider vinegar, maybe just a taste preference for us. And by means, do add the "optional" bacon, I think it's very important to the flavor of this dish. Served this evening with good, old-fashioned grilled German bratwursts. Enjoyed, and i would make again.
We liked this. The fresh dill is delicious in here. I ended up with too much liquid, even though my potatoes were piping hot when the liquid was added. Not a big deal, just wanted to note that.
Very good! I substituted green onions since they are plentiful in my garden and used turkey bacon. Have served warm and cold - good either way.
I made this yesterday for a get together today with friends who are diary/egg free. Based on the previous review, I was concerned w/it being to dry, so i increased the liquid ingredients. I didn't need to; it would have been fine as written; I even ended up draining a bit of the liquid this morning. I rinsed my potatoes with cold water to stop the cooking process, so perhaps this prevented a little of the soakage. My fresh dill had gone bad, so I ended up subbing dried and it worked fine (though I'm sure fresh would be even better). I think the optional bacon is a must. I nuked it, crumbled it, and added it at service so it remained crispy. THANKS, for the recipe!
