Who knows how to make German Potato Salad?

My SO doesn't like regular potato salad, but he had German potato salad at a friends anniversary, and he really liked it. We are having a couple of friends over Sat. night and we got some steaks for the grill. I would like to try to make the potato salad for him. Don't you normally serve it warm??

  • I've never made it but I do know that it's made with brown mustard instead of mayo and it is served warm instead of cold.

  • You can keep it hot in a crockpot once it's made.

  • Thank you michiganmom!! I really appreciate it. I've written down the recipe. I will have to make it tomorrow, since I have to work on Saturday, and I will put it in the crockpot to keep it warm.
    Thanks so much!!
