Super Yummy German Potato Salad

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!

Super Yummy German Potato Salad

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


  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!

What is your go to side dish for BBQ’s and such?
