As a celebration of the last day of Oktoberfest, I thought I would conclude with this recipe. Don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as that candy bar pie monstrosity I created last week. This recipe is very easy to make and a crowd pleaser– German hot potato salad.
To be honest I’m not sure how ‘German’ this potato salad really is. Perhaps it was inspired by a traditional German dish or perhaps a group of Southern church ladies just decided serving it next to some hotdogs was enough to verify it as German. Regardless, it’s delicious and a good alternative to a mayonnaise potato salad (which I also adore).
If you know me at all, you also know that I LOVE potatoes. It verges on complete obsession. My motto is : I never met a potato I didn’t like. And this German potato salad is one of my favorite side dishes/meals. As I made this many, many times in middle school, this recipe has a lot of fond memories to me. In this version, I decided to jazz it up with a medley of different potatoes. You can use all red new potatoes (as is usually used) but the mix of colors from these red, Yukon gold, and purple potatoes just makes the dish so much more appealing.
