"This is an authentic German potato salad recipe. It uses very little mayonnaise, and no sugar. The flavor is amazing!"

This is a really good recipe. Not to argue too much with PickyCook (and I do appreciate the feedback), but you REALLY have to watch the mayonnaise. 2 teaspoons is really the absolute most you should put in it. A dab is better.
Also, something else I've noticed - make SURE you use a good quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Since that's the only flavoring, you'll notice the quality.
And lastly - it's good to make a day or two in advance. The flavors get more depth as the salad "ages". I made a batch the night before for a cookout, and it was good, but then I ate some left overs the day *after* the cookout and it was just a lot better.
Anyway, I think I may add bacon next time. I hope other people try this and offer feedback.
following the directions exactly, i found this recipe to be bland, unattractive and had a very "mayonnaisey" taste to it, even though you didn't use much mayonnaise. maybe add scallions?
I am from Schwabenland in Germany and grew up on this potato salad. In this potato salad there is no mayonnaise or eggs in it.
I did as Arkali suggested. I enjoyed it. Yes I did add bacon.
This was awful! I followed the recipe exactly. The balsamic vinegar makes it turn a brownish color and the end product does not look very appetizing. I was very disappointed. Now that I wasted my time making this today, I now have buy some store made potato salad to take to my potluck event today!
Growing up, I had this at all family gatherings. A perfect thing they made a barques and other events.
I really enjoyed this recipe. It is very different from the "normal" potato salad. The first time I made this, we tried it warm (i'm so impatient!) My husband liked it best warm. But I thought it was better the next day at room temp. My favorite thing about this recipe is not worrying about keeping it chilled during a cookout or picnic!
The flavors didn't blend well, family wouldn't eat it. It sat in the fridge and went to waste.
