The Hot German Potato Salad is one of those dish that had me asking the question. The first time I had the traditional hot German potato salad was at our family's friend, Angela's house. Angela's mother, Irma, is German and she brought with her the family's recipe for the to-die-for German Hot Potato Salad from the old world. Ever since I have had Irma's Hot German Potato Salad, there is no other potato salad that I will eat.
Of course, there is nothing wrong with the mayo-laden potato salad. They are good in its mayo-induced savory way. However, if you ever taste this hot potato salad, the flavor and lightness of the potato salad will make you a convert. Absolutely love Irma's tangy and light potato salad. Give it a try! You will definitely fall in love with it.
