Super Yummy German Potato Salad

potatosalad

With grilling season and gatherings galore, potato salad seems like it is a staple.  I like to try some things that are differently from time to time so I was excited to try this.  I made mine with fresh potatoes from the Farmer’s Market.  I’m not going to lie, I was panicking when I saw the per-refrigerated bowl and the abundance of liquid, but by morning it had set up perfectly.

Ingredients:

16 New Potatoes, cooked

6 boiled eggs,

1 med onion, minced

4-8 slices bacon, cooked crisply

1 pt mayo

1/4 cup vinegar

1/2 c water

2 Tbsp brown sugar

1 Tbsp white sugar

1 tsp salt

Directions:

  1. Boil potatoes, drain and put in bowl, prepare boiled eggs. Set aside.
  2. Mix together vinegar, water, brown sugar, white sugar and salt.  Pour over potato mixture. Let stand for 5-10 minutes. Add mayo.
  3. Mix together, adding all but a few chopped eggs (save some for the top) and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.  I smashed the potatoes a bit, you can do yours as you prefer.  It will look very liquidy, just let it sit and don’t worry, it will turn out perfectly.

 

I’d love to hear your thoughts and modifications!
