Another of your great recipes! I took this dish to a Church Potluck tonight and it was delicious. I always thought German Potato Salad was a difficult and time-consuming ordeal; however, this recipe was really easy to make. Thanks!

This is almost exactly the same recipe that I heard on a radio program in Iowa years ago. I don't remember who called in this recipe, but it has been a favorite of our family ever since. I nearly lost my hand written recipe once, so I am so glad to find it here in case I ever misplace it again!
