    I have NEVER had warn German potato salad. It's usually lightly chilled or at most room temp. With mayo I have trouble getting it down.

      There are though. As everything else in german regionalism potato salad is different per region. Theres warm potato salad with cubes of fried bacon, theres mayo potato salad, theres cold poato salad.
      Here (and I mean the Oldenburger land) its usually cold with onions, oil, vinigar, a bit of vegetable brooth and chives. A bit further north they add Matjes or Hering pieces to it...

          Wiki says a bit south of you start the warm potato salad regions.

            I prefer it cold with mustard and mayo. I also like to add chunks of hardboiled eggs.

                  The German potato salad that I'm familiar with has boiled, sliced potatoes, bacon, bacon drippings, vinegar, sugar, a few herbs and spices that elude me at the moment, because I don't have my Mom's recipe handy and it is always served warm. You can't pick a better side dish for barbecued chicken though.

                    cold

                    When it is already 97 degrees out, you don't really need more hot side dishes.

                    Thin skinned spuds cooked with peal left on, hard boiled eggs, sweet onion, green onion, celery, pickle, mustard, and mayo. Season depending on what you are serving it with. Add a shot of paprika for color if you are having company over.

                    Add a big pot of baked beans, corn on the cob, and a rack of slow cooked ribs and color me happy.
                    Any metaphor will tear if stretched over too much reality.
