Well, not entirely. The potatoes are cooked and dressed with white vinegar. The mayo dressing is made and sitting in the fridge. I'm just waiting for the potatoes to cool before I combine the two and put the whole thing in the serving bowl. I'm a good cook but I'm definitely not a fast one. It took me over 2 hours to get the whole thing done. (and it STILL isn't done!) When I entertain, I start preparing things like 2 days ahead of time so I'm not totally frantic on the day of the party. Anyway, it is finally finished. Now I can soak my sore body in the tub for a bit before we head out to the party.

Did you chop the potatoes before boiling? I have found that that cuts down on the boiling time. Then I mix up my ingredients while still warm. Tastes so yummy while warm...

If you like warm then you would love German Potato Salad.
Bacon gives this warm German potato salad recipe a boost of flavor. The vinegar and sugar dressing on this salad has the perfect combination of salty and sweet.

Potato salad is one of those things that improves with age, I like mine even better the next day.

I love potato salads! I usually have mine with canned tuna... or octopus, fish goes great with boiled potatoes.

I've never put protein in with my potato salads. I usually have it on the side.

@NJChicaa It also works great as side dish, definitely. Perfect for those who don't like the texture of mashed potatoes.

This is the recipe I used. I have the Cook's Illustrated Cookbook but this is the exact same recipe online. I doubled it and omitted the egg. It is a very good classic potato salad that will please a mixed crowd. It isn't fancy, it isn't going to knock anyone's socks off with something new. It is called the All-American Potato Salad for a reason.
Make and share this Cooks All-American Potato Salad recipe from Food.com.
