There are so many different potato salads, all traditional, yet so different.In fact, it's said there are as many types of potato salads as there are German cooks. I've separated the potato salads into their own category!

Some of my Favorite Salads ...

A favorite that I grew up with is the herring salad. A super simple fast supper this one is. Tasting sweet and creamy, served with boiled new potatoes. That's all that's needed. It's a real  kid pleaser, for my kids anyways.

There's the "new" traditional - Corn Salad - a colorful and quick German salad. When I said "new" traditional, that's because I didn't grow up with corn. 

German Salad Recipe: German Corn Salad

Corn was food for animals, not people.

That's the tradition my parents brought to Canada with them when they emigrated from Germany.

Although I enjoyed corn at my friend's house, it took quite a while before I saw it in our house. It carried the stigma of "cattle feed."

So, imagine my surprise when I visit Germany for the first time 50 years later and order a house salad in a very fine restaurant. A lovely salad arrives, sprinkled on top with corn! Canned corn

Try the hints at the bottom of the recipes. They will give you ideas to alter the salads and dips depending on your tastes and ingredient availabilities. You'll also find the best salad dressing recipes throughout the salad recipes. My favorite is a sour cream dressing that's so easy to make.
