Mmmmm this sounds like a nice potato salad. I find the broth very interesting. I think it should taste great. I like potato salads and usually I eat them cold but this warm potato salad should make a nice change which I am very keen to try. I'm definitely doing this one soon.

Sounds like a version of the southern German potato salad. A wonderful traditional addition to this would be to take some bacon, dice it, brown it, and then add it, plus the bacon fat, to the salad. Now, that would make this a very traditional German salad eaten in the Bavarian area. Perfect for Oktoberfest and any time of the year!
