Growing up, I never knew anyone made potato salad with mayonaisse. My mother always made this type of potato salad. Sadly, I don't have her recipe but this is about as close as I can come.

How to Make German Potato Salad

Step-by-Step

  • 1Boil unpeeled potatoes until tender. Do not overcook. When cool enough to handle, peel and slice. Set aside.
  • 2Fry bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from pan and drain on paper towels. Crumble when cool.
  • 3In same fry pan, in bacon grease, saute onions. (You need approx. 1/2 cup bacon grease. Remove extra or add oil to make the 1/2 cup, if needed.) Have flour, sugar, salt, pepper, water and vinegar measured and ready while onions are sauteing. When onions are soft, slowly add flour and stir. Mixture will thicken slightly.
