Warm German Potato Salad

JoSele Swopes


I came across this recipe while we were in Germany, it is served warm normally but I have served it cold too....So it is good either way...I use the yellow meated potatoes because they have a better flavor in the potato salad...I use the Yukon Gold...I do not have a picture of the dish as of yet so I have a free picture from on line...
