“This recipe is the result of tweaking traditional German Potato Salad recipes to suit our tastes. We like it better than any others we have tasted. Whenever we have a family gathering this is the dish everyone always asks for. I have to make extra so everyone can have leftovers to take home. The ingredient amounts are guesstimates because I always just toss it all together without measuring for this dish. Next time I make it I will take measurements and adjust the recipe accordingly.”
