Farm Kitchen Tip – This is a recipe that was brought back from Germany a few years back by Farmer Kurt. He was visiting a family and he was served this potato salad. The recipe came to us with ingredients, and we added some measurements after trying out the recipe and it is now a farm favorite when potato harvest is in season.
