      I suspect the American concept of "German" potato salad is used merely to differentiate the chilled mayo/egg versions that everyone here serves at backyard BBQs from the warm bacon/vinegar version. You know, pork and pickled stuff being fairly accurate German stereotypes.
      Given that Potatoes originated in the America before going to Germany after Columbus, I'd wager the first potato salad was made in the Western Hemisphere somewhere.

      Still, the point about the salad being defined by the rest of the ingredients is pretty important. Just like fried potato salad was in a place where oil was very common. Which I would read as a very solid source of pigs locally.

      What salad should Biden use to tell the racist party to bugger off?

        I had a friend whose grandmother and great aunt immigrated to the United States from Germany after WWII. They made awesome potato salad. The secret was a special German vinegar that had warnings on the bottle not to consume it undiluted.

              That's probably 15% acidity vinegar.

              For comparison, 30% acidity vinegar is used as an industrial strength weed killer.

                It works great on grassy weeds. Not so great on unwanted trees and shrubbery - things with tough bark.

                  So you don't like eggs or oil?

                      I'm not sure I want a condiment that is used as a biological solvent.

                      • Eggs have almost no redeeming value outside of baking. On rare occasion I can tolerate an omelet if in the right mood.

                          Mayo? That's eggs emulsified in oil. Nothing bad in it, or even mysterious. Well, except for all of the preservatives- but my mom did homemade mayo due to allergies in our family. Was darned amazing.

                            If you don't like Eggs and Bacon, you are not an American. Commie bastard.

                              Eggs is probably my favorite food.

                                Bacons is overrated but far more tolerable than eggs. During the height of the bacon (scourge?) at a restaurant back in the US the menu didn't offer a single burger that didn't have bacon. Sure I can ask them not to include it but were they going to reduce the price similarly as they would raise it had I asked for bacon to be added?
