German Potato Salad

Tammy Raynes


I use red potatoes in this because they remain firm, even when cooked, so they won't break apart when tossed. This potato salad tastes best when served warm.

This is a favorite of mine and I make it all the time. Great for special occasions. I will be making this for the upcoming Memorial Day weekend cookout at my house.

This can be served in the cast iron skillet that you can use to cook bacon in. Bring it right from the stove to the table. Enjoy!
