The Best German Potato Salad – So Delicious

My family just loves my traditional German Potato salad and asks me all time to make it. Not only are we eating it traditionally on Christmas Eve with frankfurters and small meat balls (the most tastiest ever – recipe still to come) but also as the most popular side dish for barbecues.

It is also a great dish to take to a tail gate party or a picnic.

You can prepare it a day in advance and leave it in the fridge to keep it fresh. In fact, ‘my’ German Potato salad should be made at least four hours before you want to eat it.

This way, all the flavors can develop and make it the best potato salad you’ve ever tasted.

If you asked a German family how they make their potato salad, you’ll most likely get hundreds of variations.

The recipe I am sharing with you is the way my mum and grandmother have made it. It is our German family tradition.
