German Style Potato Salad

Dear foodies,

Do you like German cuisine? You answers may vary but my one is quite definite. Grown up in a city, Tsingtao, established and built by Germans since 1898. German influence has been in my life since when I was a kid. The German architects around my house, the German influenced local cuisine and the history is a spectacular experience. After coming to Adelaide, Hahndorf is also German, although the architecture is quite village like rather than city. Anyway, I still enjoyed it a lot with the pork hocks and tasty German sausages.

Less waffle, more food… German potato salad is a typical dish for the cuisine. I tried myself and here you go.
