German Potato Salad with White Balsamic Vinegar - Texas Hill Country Olive Co.

We firmly believe a solid potato salad recipe is a staple at any BBQ, picnic, or large gathering. But in our hearts, no potato salad comes as close to a German potato salad. Why you ask? Vinegar, of course!

We love the warmth of a German potato salad, combined with the punch vinegar gives to every bite. A potato salads with heaps of dairy? No thanks!

And do you know what sets our German potato salad apart from the rest? We use a balsamic vinegar rather than a red wine or apple cider vinegar! We prefer our White Balsamic Vinegar, which adds a hint of sweetness to this savory dish.
