Potato salad is a classic make-to-bring-somewhere-dish. Am I right? It uses inexpensive ingredients, it's relatively quick & simple to put together, can be made ahead of time, and almost everyone likes it.
My problem usually with potato salad is the disgusting amount of mayonnaise added to most recipes. Bleh.
So, this is a thing that has been around for a while, but I only recently stumbled upon German Potato Salad ("Kartoffelsalat") a potato salad recipe that uses vinegar & the fat from the bacon to create the dressing. Most traditionally this potato salad is served warm, but if you let it cool, the salad does get a little "creamier" as the bacon fat cools.
A potato salad that boasts a sweet & tangy dressing, and it's mayo free? Yes please!
It's crazy delicious, it is a crowd pleaser, it is awesomesauce, as some people might say! And I like that saying for this because, well, it really is the "sauce" that makes this the best!
