German Potato Salad may not be the first thing that comes to mind when choosing something to have with traditional BBQ’s, but this one is definitely a great addition to your grilling rotation!
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.
If you’ve never tried German Potato Salad, I highly recommend trying it out. I swear this recipe is delicious! We also have a ‘regular’ potato salad that is our own creation and a Light Summer Garden Salad that uses all fresh veggies, you could of course use non-fresh veggies too.
If you are looking for a healthy summer treat, try out these Mock Welch’s Strawberry Popsicles. They taste slightly better than I remember Welch’s tasting as a child. Definitely a treat to cool ya down on those hot days!

German Potato Salad
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
- Boil potatoes, drain and put in bowl, prepare boiled eggs. Set aside.
- Mix together vinegar, water, brown sugar, white sugar and salt. Pour over potato mixture. Let stand for 5-10 minutes. Add mayo.
- 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.
