Knorr used to make a marinade mix for non-mayonnaise type potato salad. It was available at German and European delis all over the US and Australia, as far as I know. It recently became unavailable, so I've been experimenting to make my own KARTOFFELSALAT MIT KLARER KRÄUTERMARINADE! It reminds me of the potato salad my German Oma made when I was a kid! (Prep time includes cooking the potatoes. Substitute wine vinegar for herbal vinegar if necessary)
