German Style Potato Salad

Need an epic side for a BBQ or delicious dish for a picnic? Try out my awesome German potato salad recipe – you won’t be disappointed! The fresh flavour of the dill and tangy-ness of the mustard and pickles really make this dish pop! We went to the St Augustine Farmer’s Market this weekend to pick up some of our favourite pickles and ginger + carrot kraut from Olive My Pickle – SO delicious! Not only are their products homemade and delicious, but the brine is full of probiotics and makes for a healthy boost, so drink up! Serve the potato salad with some good old kraut and BBQ’d Bratwurst and you’re onto a winner!
