This Oma-Approved German Potato Salad Recipe Is So Easy to Make

German potato salad is a warm potato salad made with a vinegar-based dressing. While some German potato salad recipes have bacon, this one does not, but feel free to add it if you'd like. We think Oma would approve.

For this warm German potato salad recipe you'll need small new potatoes, an onion, mustard, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, chicken broth, granulated sugar and chopped green onions and/or fresh parsley. The potatoes are boiled until tender, chopped and mixed with the remaining ingredients. You can peel the potatoes or leave the skin on. Your call. 

Serve this easy potato salad recipe as a side dish with porkburgerschickenhot dogs or whatever meal works for you. Everyone will love it.

  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
