Michelle's notes for this recipe:
My Bavarian mother has made this potato salad for as long as I can remember. Unlike lots of other German food, which tends to be on the "heavy" side, this recipe is light, cool, and refreshing -- perfect for a summer picnic or to take along to a potluck!

Personalize This


Add salt to cucumbers in a medium bowl and set aside to wilt.
Remove skin from potatoes when cool enough to handle. Slice.
In a large bowl, lightly toss potatoes and remaining ingredients until well mixed.
Squeeze the cucumbers in a kitchen towel to remove excess water. Add cucumbers and green onions to potato mixture and toss lightly.
If desired, garnish with minced chives.
