This was nothing like my German grandmother's recipe. Would not recommend it at all.

My mother always made German Potato Salad from scratch but this was pretty good. It was best when served warm, but we would raid the fridge for leftovers anyway!

I used fresh (instead of packaged) potatoes, real bacon bits, onion chive from my garden instead of green/spring onion, Miracle Whip in place of mayo and I tossed in a Tbsp of creamy horseradish. Unless I'm baking I rarely measure anything unless absolutely necessary, I kind of 'eyeball' it, so I may have ended up with a bit more or less mayo/mustard sauce in the end, but all-in-all .. I think it came out pretty well :) Especially with the addition of the horseradish! Seemed a bit more authentic that way. Would be even more authentic if ground brown mustard were used. I might try that next time.
