This Confetti Salad, aka Konfettisalat, comes out of one of my very old, falling-apart, out-of-print German cookbooks. In fact, where I first found the recipe, I wondered at its name "Konfettisalat", thinking it must be a typo. It sounded too English. But no, it's German, all right. Most likely from the northern part of Germany since it uses mayonnaise in its dressing.
Since this German potato salad contains meat, it becomes a nice light lunch, all by itself.
This is one of those best salad recipes that's so easy to change up. There are so many variations on this recipe, as is evident by "googling".
If one starts with the basic (it's really just a cold German potato salad recipe), and adds a bit of this and a bit of that, it becomes a brand new recipe for potato salad that is so pretty to look at.
For the one pictured above, I added sliced radishes as well. Then, because hubby loves pickles in his salad, I included a bit of pickle juice to give a bit of a kick. Wunderbar!
Try this next time you're asked to bring something to a buffet. It looks so pretty and tastes so good.
