Truth be told- I am NOT a potato salad fan. Potatoes covered in gloopy mayo has never been my thing. My hubby loves it though, weirdo. Bless his heart. haha. JK. For some reason when I was planning our 4th of July menu I thought a potato salad would go good with what I had planned, so I went on the hunt for a non-mayo recipe.
I found this German Potato Salad recipe on-line, and after reading the ingredients I knew it would be delicious! There is not one drop of mayonnaise in this recipe but lots of other flavorful ingredients. Bacon for starters. Any recipe with bacon listed as the second ingredient you know is going to be good. ha! The apple cider vinegar and dijon mustard also make this potato salad tangy and so good. I was worried about the mustard because Kale isn’t a fan, but he honestly LOVED this. It was another one of those meals he kept complimenting on as we ate. I love it when that happens!
