German Potato Salad
Do you know how hard it is to find paleo cured meats? They’re almost all cured with sugar or on sugar. Hams especially. I haven’t found a single company that offers a no sugar added ham. Until now. Pederson’s Farms to the rescue!

I have PCOS. Did you know that? That stands for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. It means I’m insulin resistant (and tend toward pre-diabetes if I’m not careful with my diet). That’s why 4 years ago, I cleaned up my diet and try to stay low sugar and paleo when possible. I had incredible success with the 21 day sugar detox and then a more relaxed paleo diet. Definitely have become more lax on diet over the years, though I stay gluten free, msg free, and low dairy all the time because I’m particularly sensitive to these three things.
Pederson’s Farms is starting a holidays together promotion that I just absolutely love. And jumped at the chance to participate in. So, when Pederson’s Farms reached out wanting to colloborate and offered their sugar free meats starter kit, I immediately said yes! Since day one of the 21 day sugar detox that I started way back in 2017, I’ve been a fan of their sugar free bacon and kielbasa. I’m also sensitive to MSG and most kielbasas have MSG added to them. Not Pederson’s Farms! They’re as clean as clean can be!
I didn’t need to modify this recipe much from the original. My parents’ neighbors shared this recipe with me last weekend. We tried out a German restaurant with them, which is what got me on a German food kick! I followed her instructions, which the exception of substituting coconut sugar in place of white. I don’t use refined sugars and don’t even have them in the house so I’m not tempted. ? This salad is great for meal prep and will last easily 3-4 days in the frig. I ate it with Teton Waters sausage for lunch 3 times in the last week! Feel free it substitute white sweet potatoes in place of the russet if you’re avoiding regular potatoes!
