Black Forest Potato Salad
From: Mirj

I know what you're thinking, potatoes with chocolate and cherries, gross, ick and ewwww! Wrong, there's no chocolate or cherries here, just a very different potato salad that is surprisingly tasty. Give it a try!


  • 1 (5 1/3 medium) lb potatoes, cut into 1/3-inch slices
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (10 ounce) can sauerkraut, rinsed and throughly drained
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • salt, to taste
  • 1 cup diced tart apple

In 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, cook potatoes, covered, in 2 inches boiling water until tender, about 12 minutes; drain.

Meanwhile, in large bowl whisk together vinegar, oil, water and pepper.

Mix in apples.

Add potatoes, sauerkraut, onions and parsley to apple mixture; toss gently.

Season with salt.
