Taste of Home. This is for all the fake-German Potato Salat lovers in Zaar Land. Maybe there is a different standard for noodles :) Anyway, this fake-German stuff is really good. You guessed it, no mayo or pickles.

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!
