It’s been a little slow over here. We know. We are hard-core scheming new recipes, and new collections of recipes. We are kicking booty on our re design and it’s almost ready. I can’t wait for you all to see it. We are working hard behind the scenes so this blog can rock your socks off. Things are changing are we are really excited about it. WOO!

We have another West Elm recipe for you guys. Today it’s this great Warm German Potato Salad. Let’s talk real quick about how potato salad is kind of difficult. I don’t really like the kind that uses a whole bottle of mayo. It’s just too much. It becomes more about the mayo texture than about the potatoes. Gross. The other issue I feel like I have run across is not enough seasoning. So it just tastes like really bland and like you bought it at a grocery store. Ew. So now if you have those issues with potato salad I present you with this solution. This potato salad is mayo free, and simple and yummy, which I why I love it, and why I think it’s perfect for summer. Head on over the West Elm’s blog Front & Main for the full recipe!!!!!!

    This is different from what we eat in Europe. But after living in Germany for 7 years I learned different regions have different cooking styles. Just like here in the States. Will Give this a try.

    Different than the German Potato Salad I grew up with, ours had no mustard but did use bacon. Bacon makes just about anything better (at least in my family it does)!

    Sometimes when I want a creamy potato salad but I don’t want to eat a year supply of mayo in one sitting I will mash up some of the potatoes and fold them into the dressing to make a faux-creamy texture. I have never tried German Potato Salad, I can’t wait to give this one a try.

    Ooh, a big bowl of potato salad would be perfect for this hot weekend! I love all those whole mustard seeds–they must give it a great contrasting crunch.

    Potato anything is always a winner with me! This salad is perfect for winter in Oz. High five on the mayo boycott!

    I love potato salad. I have a confession, my mom makes a really good mayo based potato salad. I love it. I also love my Grandma’s German potato salad which is mustardy and vinegary. So good. I would never tell them that I like both though, gotta make them both believe they make the best potato salad.

      You’re such a good daughter/granddaughter :) You’re right, nothing wrong with a yummy mayo-based potato salad….just not one drowning in it!

    This is such a fabulous salad, I’m sure my family will love this. What we usually prepare is the baby potato salad with the mayo as its dressing. Yuuuumm, I am so happy to see this post of yours, I now have a new dish to prepare!! Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
