27: Recipe | Bavarian Potato Salad

We Germans, we like our potato side dishes. I don’t know about you, but I basically grew up on potatoes. I love potatoes in pretty much any form and I am trying to find more ways to incorporate them into our meals. Potatoes sometimes get a bad rep, but they’re actually an important part of a healthy diet.

Today I am sharing a recipe for a potato salad on the lighter side with you. It’s not made with mayo, but with a broth-based vinegar dressing. It’s a Bavarian recipe and it adds some pancetta to the mix. If you want it to be vegetarian, you can omit the pancetta, but of course, it gives it some extra flavor.

Give it a try, you just might like it.

  1. Yes for potatoes!
    I can eat them daily. And if I had to choose between rice, noodles or potatoes – take a guess…
    I love this kind of potato salad. We never really do it with mayo and if it’s always mir joghurt than mayo.
    Have a great day

  2. I grew up in a German household so we had potatoes for pretty much every dinner. I just got a 10 lb bag of potatoes so I’ll have to try this out tonight! I love vinegar based salads :)

  3. I grew up with potatoes as well. The Swabians here are more into noodles and Spätzle though. That potato salad looks delicious!

  4. Yum this sounds really good! I like potato salad but have only had German style potato salad once! I will have to try this recipe!
