Mom's German Potato Salad

Submitted by: CORTNEY_NAMASTE

Introduction

Boil the potatoes (with skins on) and the eggs until done. While the potatoes and eggs are cooking you can dice up the celery and onion into a fairly large bowl. Let the potatoes and eggs cool, then dice them up as well into the same bowl with the celery and onions. You can leave the skins on the potato if you like. Once everything is chopped you can mix it up with a 1/2 cup of miracle whip and a 1/2 cup of light mayo. Mix everything together and salt and pepper to taste. Lastly, add the vinegar and stir thoroughly and refrigerate until cool. I like mine very tangy so I put more vinegar depending on taste. Boil the potatoes (with skins on) and the eggs until done.

    This is how my Oma made one of her German potato salads. LOVE IT!! My mother adds a diced pickle and uses some pickle juice instead of vinegar. - 4/12/10

    That explains it! I'm 1/2 German and that is the recipe I have made for years, adding chopped dill pickles instead of extra vinegar. Hubby love this salad! A summer time comfort food! - 7/20/10
