Oma's German Potato Salad Recipes ❤️

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

German potato salad recipes, aka Kartoffelsalat, have so many variations, there's a perfect one just for your picnic, lunch, supper, or party. Hot, warm, cold, creamy or not – you choose your favorite. 

Or, perhaps you'll end up with several favorites, like me. And yes, the one shown above has mayo, because it comes from northern Germany. If you want ones without mayo like the ones in southern Germany, you'll find those here as well.

Sometimes I take my time to make a real traditional German potato salad, and other times I'll make my own easy speedy version ... the Easy Potato Salad.

Grab your copy of my own German Summer Salads e-Cookbook in English. I know you'll LOVE it, too! 

Sharing these salad recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)


Find out how to make potato salad in any one of the recipes below and then try the different variations - remember to try the hints too. One of these is sure to become your best potato salad recipe ever! (For fun, try the herring one!)

Hot, Quick, Cold, Easy ... Potato Salads ...

Potato salads are great for picnics on hot summer days, but they also become an unexpected treat in the winter too. 

Rose's Hot German potato salad

Now, hot potato salad is something my Mom never made. I didn't even realize it was a traditional German dish until I was looking through some cookbooks.

Since one of my favorite foods is potatoes, I thought, "Why not give it a try?" and am I glad I did.

Not only that, but since my regular cold potato salad does take a bit of time to make, I got busy in the kitchen to do some improvising. WOW! What a success. I now have one recipe that can be used hot, warm, or cold! Great for those quick suppers or unexpected company.

There's even one made with sweet potatoes that I got the recipe from my daughter-in-love, Sylvie. It looks so pretty with the bits of orange sweet potatoes peeking through the creamy dressing of this potato salad.
