Asian-German Fusion Potato Salad

Asian-German Fusion Potato Salad


"This is a creamy German-style potato salad with a tremendous flavor given from Asian ingredients! I made this up on a whim and everyone loved it. I add ham, but feel free to leave it out - it won't alter the flavor much, just the texture."

This salad tastes better the second day, and it was great the first day! I didn't use the oil, ham or hot sauce. I liked this for a change of pace!
