That is much better than raisins, pineapple or anchovies.

/ugh that doesn't look the most appetizing of sliced ham

What potato salad really needs is hard boiled eggs, and as much dill as you can get your hands on.

You're making potato salad WRONG

This is gonna be a mustard v mayo fight, isn't it? I'm okay with either and even a combination, but mustard is my preferred.

and not because you're making potato salad to begin with.

Hey, fark you. Potato salad can be damn good.

Anyway, you should save the ham until the very end,

Wait, da fuq?!

then use the full slices as potato-salad wrappers

Double da fuq?!

A good, mustardy, German potato salad with little chunks of black forest ham added at the end is a thing of beauty.

maaan, we were at LiDL just a day or two ago, and they had teeny boxes of frozen chives, frozen dill, etc. - new to me and seemed a little weird but now I'm really wishing I'd bought it - if nothing other than, "for Science!"

Yeah. Definitely served warm. Bacon's fine, but should be no need for vinaigrette, as the potatoes should have a good bit of apple cider vinegar already.

Mustard and Miracle Whip, Ham can be served with it, but not in it.

What... no pineapple?

Potato salad is one of few foods that don't make me constantly want to puke lately.

Anyone tried adding some horseradish?

I'm too scared to eat sushi with a stomach this unreliable, but I kind of miss the fake wasabi burn.

What the hell is wrong with people? Do you put potatoes in your egg salad? Oh wait, you just did. Once you add a protein it becomes dominant in naming convention. Eggs don't belong in potato salad.

As long as there aren't any raisins in it, you can make potato salad however you want.

Some people think pineapple on pizza is an abomination (I don't - Hawaiian pizza all the way), I think raisins in potato salad is an abomination.

That's like saying pork ice cream is better than chicken liver ice cream.

At age 7 I decided most German food is repulsive.  I haven't yet found a reason to change that opinion.

Damn. Well, you have my deepest sympathies.

I'm constantly disappointed with Japanese potato salad (it's usually as bad as the egg salad is good).

Best potato salad I ever had was at Two Chefs in Greenville, SC. Roasted red new potatoes with skins, the tiniest amount of mayo, some fresh herbs (can't remember if it was dill or rosemary based), diced onion (red, I think), and a generous crack of salt and pepper. Poifect.

Sounds like my mom and grandma. They took mashed potatoes, white vinegar, some hard boiled egg, and in Grandmother's recipe, stuffed green olives.

"You see, a rabbit on first pass excretes little balls of hi-energy, vegan wrapped enzymes. The rabbit, a few hours or days later, returns and eats round one, and on second pass thru the stomach it becomes poop. Rabbits eat their round one veggie balls and/or their neighbour's. Rabbits are highly communal animals. Anyhow, with the aid of his trained eye, Grandpa and I collected and added these rabbit poops to our soup mix, one of the most enzyme rich foods known to man."
