    Debber's Note:

    Handed down to my mom, then to me, and I've handed it down to my kids already too. A GREAT potluck dish, kept warm in a crockpot, usually NO leftovers (boo hoo!).

      I made half of this recipe the same day I tagged it (12-12) for a dinner I called *Tag Nite in Iceland* . The fare included a mixed green salad w/a tagged dressing recipe, this recipe & 3 other tags (almost like a tapas feast). I occ make what I call *Selfish Tags* & this was 1 of those times. I have always loved classic German potato salad & this recipe takes the genre out of the ordinary, but DH reveres the potato & does not favor the use of vinegar in most dishes. So this was solely for me & I am glad I did not have to share. Like a prior reviewer, I found the balance of vinegar & sugar to be ideal. Using celery + eggs was new to me & I liked the added texture, bulk & flavour they provided. The only downside to this recipe is that I am likely to be more selfish than normal in the future, but I can easily live w/that. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us (me). :-)

      What a delightful warm potato salad. It still has that nice salad dressing flavour but so different from any other potato salad. We all enjoyed it. Bacon does make good things better!! I will def. be making this salad again. thanks for sharing your family recipe. Made for ZWT X-tra Hot Dishes.

      A new favorite potato dish! This is the best German Potato Salad I have ever tasted. A perfect balance of vinegar to sugar in the dressing. Tangy and not too sweet. Loved it. Served it with barbecued bratwurst sausages on a bun (our first barbecue of the season) and cole slaw. Yummy.
