German potato salad typically has red potatoes that are peeled or cut into pieces. It's recommended to use fresh potatoes, although the type of potato might not be important. The recipe also features bacon, vinegar, sugar, salt, and parsley.
Most recipes feature tangy and savory flavors with herbs. To make this type of potato salad, fry some bacon and cook the potatoes gently. After the potatoes are cooked, try adding some bacon drippings to flavor the cubed potatoes, as well as the other recommended seasonings. Many recipes feature cooled potato salad, however it may also be made warm or at room temperature.
