Tangy Potato Salad Recipe

Tangy Potato Salad Recipe

This recipe came from Germany, where it was passed down through our family. My grandmother made it for me when I was a mother modified it...and I added my own touches. It still has authentic German flavor, and it's in demand for every cookout or potluck we attend!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:12 servings


  • 12 medium red potatoes (about 4 pounds)
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
  • 2 dill pickles, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tomatoes, cubed
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


  • 1. Place potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain. When cool enough to handle, peel and slice potatoes. Cool completely.
  • 2. Transfer to a large salad bowl. Stir in the onion, eggs, pickles and parsley; set aside.
  • 3. In a small saucepan, heat chicken broth just until warm; remove from the heat. Stir in the mayonnaise, salt, pepper and garlic powder until blended.
  • 4. Pour over potato mixture; lightly toss to coat. Cover and chill. Just before serving, gently stir in tomatoes and bacon. Yield: 10-12 servings.
