Oma's Summer German Potato Salad

By Michelle London innkeeperchef

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!
