Kathy is exactly right - lots of different recipes for Kartofel Salat. Having lived 8 years in Germany (Bavaria
Great recipe. Even in Germany, there are lots of variations on German potato salad. Just ad we have many different recipes here for American potato salad.
I used Trader Joe's 21 seasoning salute and Spike in place of salt and pepper. I also used apple cider vinegar. Traditional German potato salad does frequently include apples. I think my version has more flavor. Oh and I also used extra virgin olive oil in place of canola oil. great recipe to start, but you do need to enhance and experiment with more ingredients. Don't be shy. It would be almost impossible to go wrong with this whatever you do.
I have a genuine deli recipe from Germany. This recipe is missing some key ingredients, such as sugar and mustard seeds. Our recipe also is baked in the oven so the potatoes get the full flavor. I will pass if you don't know what it should really taste like.
