German potato salad is a no-mayo, vinegar-based potato salad that's traditionally served warm. Baby red potatoes are gently tossed with a tangy, and savory bacon Dijon dressing that's seriously amazing. It's perfect for potlucks, parties, barbecues, and of course, Oktoberfest!
Whenever I want to switch up my classic potato salad routine— this authentic German potato salad with a tangy sweet dressing is a wonderful alternative. It's perfect for when you'd like a vinegar-based, no-mayo potato salad, but with extra oomph. And that's all thanks to the deliciously warm bacon vinaigrette, similar to the bacon Dijon dressing in my favorite sautéed carrots recipe.
I first enjoyed German potato salad (many times over) when I lived in Heidelberg, Germany in college, and I've been a fan ever since. Traditionally, this "meat and potatoes" recipe combines baby red potatoes with ham or speck (German bacon) and it's served warm. But I think it's equally tasty served cold for potlucks and summer cookouts!
