Mom’s Potato Salad


Potato salad is a very common dish in Germany as well. Once in a while, people like to prepare and eat a nice potato salad.

I used garlic dip and herb butter to make my steak even more delicious. I am a big fan of barbecues. I always laugh when people can´t await to put the meat on fire but when we are finished, people look totally exhausted because they did eat way too much. But if there … Continue reading Tasty German Barbecue Combination
