In viewing the recipes, I was checking the German Salads and found this one. This is the exact recipe that I tried from Taste of Home back in the June/July 1997 issue and that's how we came up with the variations for our recipe. When I dug the old recipe out, I was surprised to see it was "word for word" the same recipe. This recipe was posted by Gordon Kremer of Sacramento California and he was a runner-up in their monthly food contest. I certainly rate Gordon's recipe with 5 stars!
i made this in honor of Judy-Jude since she had made it and reviewed it. i cheated and made it with potato gnocchi instead of the noodles, using 1 pound of gnocchi. this made it a noodle-potato salad and it was terrific. i did use 1/2 of the celery and a little more bacon and dehydrated onion,(cause i hate to chop onions,) very good recipe.

What a tasty and unusual salad/dish. Great for when you feel like cooking something that is different from the usual starchy side dishes. Will definitely be making again. Made and reveiwed this dish for the Cookathon in Judy-Jude's honor.
For a fake german dish both DH (who is german) and I thought this deserved a 5 star rating. It had the right amount of tang to it and it's easy to prepare. I will be making this again and again. Thank's for posting.
Very nice salad. The sauce reminded me of a spinach salad we had at a Bennigens resteraunt in Florida. I did double the noodles but only made the sauce as diracted. It worked out just right.
This has a really good flavor. I used the cholesterol-free egg noodles and they're excellent with this. Thanks!
