Hot German Potato Salad

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Christmas Carol

Can't go wrong with Betty! Crocker, that is. This is just so delicious that I make it quite often. It's wonderful with pork chops, wienerschnitzel (did I spell that right?), or just by itself. Flavorful with just the right amount of tanginess!

It's easy and inexpensive to make and tastes great. The family loved it. I used canned potatoes which cut the cooking time to about 15 minutes.
