Slow Cooker Authentic German Potato Salad

  • Cooking Time:

    6 hours on Low
  • Servings:



2 lbs. Red Potatoes, cut into 1/4" slices
1 Small Red Onion, thinly sliced
1/3 c. Apple Cider Vinegar
3 T. Olive Oil
2 tsp. Dijon Mustard
1 T. Sugar
Salt & Pepper to taste
3 T. Sliced Green Onion, for garnish
3 T. Cooked Bacon Pieces, for garnish

I grew up in a small town in Southern Illinois with a big German influence. (Our church picnic was called the Kirchenfest, for example!) Pretty much any family reunion or community gathering included traditional German dishes including some sort of German Potato Salad. This is my favorite version – of course, from a slow cooker! Enjoy this Slow Cooker Authentic German Potato Salad any time of year!

  1. Layer the onions and potatoes in the bottom of a 6-Quart Slow Cooker.
  2. In a small bowl, combine vinegar, oil, mustard and sugar.
  3. Pour mustard mixture over top ingredients in the slow cooker. Toss well to coat.
  4. Add salt & pepper
  5. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours.
  6. Remove lid and taste potatoes. Adjust seasonings, if desired.
  7. If desired, garnish with green onion and bacon. Serve warm

Happy Crocking!
