I never thought that potatoes would be so ubiquitous in Germany. Just about every meal we ate out came with potatoes, mostly fried, but also mashed or made into gnocchi. It would not surprise me if there were as many recipes for German potato salad as there are families in Germany. Not to be outdone, below is the recipe for German Potato Salad that our family has used. It is really, really good!!
GERMAN POTATO SALAD.
3 slices of bacon, diced
3 tablespoons of onion
1 rounded tablespoon flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup water
2+ cups boiled potatoes, diced or sliced
Fry bacon and onion until light brown. Add flour and mix well. Add sugar, vinegar, salt, pepper and water. When well blended, add potatoes. Heat thoroughly. May be served hot or cold but I prefer hot or room temp.
