Bavarian Potato Salad

Potato salad is a side dish that varies depending on where you are geographically.

While I love me a good ole mayonnaise potato salad with some BBQ in the south, I am obsessing over the German potato salad!

Tart, tangy, and slightly sweet due to the addition of diced apples, you will love this potato salad as much as I do.
