Bavarian Potato-Cucumber Salad

    I think this recipe needs some work. There was too much liquid, which made it soggy and mushy after only one day. I would cut the cucumber into chunks rather than slices, and not salt it, to keep it fresher and crisper. The salt could be mixed into the vinaigrette, otherwise the potatoes taste bland and the cucumbers salty. Overall, not my favorite.

    This is the best potato salad I have ever made. I made it for a party and people begged to take leftovers home. The fresh cukes, I used the English ones wrapped in plastic wrap and didn't peel them, add a great flavor. The salad is light without the heavy mayonnaise taste of so many others. It wasn't watery for me--as another reviewer stated-- until the end--I made a triple batch. Just pour any excess off. The next time you make the recipe you can always add more potatoes or decrease the liquid if it is too moist. This is a keeper!
