German potato salad

German potato salad: (n)

– the total opposite of your mama’s potato salad.

 

The other day, when I didn’t know what to make for dinner (again! ) my hubby requested my “German baked pork chops” , and I got to chose the side.

I never made this type of potato salad before, but I thought it went well with the main dish, and I was too lazy to make spatzle.

Where I got this recipe from is not the “norm” of the Internet or online…

My Nintendo DS.

Tee-hee.

Anyway, those of you that have not ever had German potato salad- here’s what it’s like:

It’s served warm.

No mayonnaise.

Vinegar-y.

Onion-y.

and… I added crisp bacon. So… mine is bacon-y.

It’s also taste-y.
