came upon this while searching for german chocolate cake.... many moons later ;o)
The way potato salad is made depends on the region - the version with mayonnaise is typical for the north and the west - so if you want to, you can call it the Lowlands....
oil and vinegar are more south, towards the "highlands"...
unfortunately you find oil and vinegar also in recipes from the east, the former german regions of Ostpreussen (East-Prussia..?) and Schlesien, and there are also rather low lands..
LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
