“An easy recipe that I got from a real German! LOL! This is a simple and traditional German dish and every family has their own recipe. It can be prepared for the next day's picnic or barbecue. Its perfect with fried fish or meat, served with a cold beer. You can experiment with some additional or other ingredients, depending on what you want to serve with it. Enjoy!”
