I like making my potato salad this way and it is a great way to serve at a picnic because it is served cold and will not spoil in the heat... This recipe always gets great reviews and the recipe given out many time over... I hope you enjoy this as much as my crew....

How to Make Great Grandma's German Potato Salad

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash potatoes and place on paper plate and microwave for 8-10 minutes (you can peel or leave the skin on). When done cut in half lengthwise then in half lengthwise again and then cut each piece in thirds.
  2. Place pieces in a medium bowl.
    Fry bacon pieces in skillet, stirring until cooked and crispy.
    Pour the cooked bacon pieces and all the drippings over the potatoes (I know, but you will love it this way - it's not like you will eat it like this every day).
  3. Add the diced onion over bacon and potatoes.
    Next:
    Combine the remaining ingredients in a measuring cup and whisk to combine. Pour mixture over the ingredients in the bowl. Fold and mix to coat everything evenly. Cover and leave at room temperature. Do not chill. Stir again just before serving. If you have leftovers; store in fridge and heat slightly in microwave then stir to coat potatoes with the bacon drippings that have liquefied in the microwave.
