The southern German version of the potato salad does without mayonnaise and is therefore much less fatty than the version with "mayo". Potatoes and carrots prevent acidity caused by sweets and are particularly stomach-friendly.

The mild, yet spicy and beautifully colourful filling is ideal for children's groups and children's birthdays. But adults also enjoy using it, for example at a barbecue or picnic.
