Top Review by Acerast

I really enjoyed this. I have had this type of salad in Germany and a neighbor from Estonia makes one similar to this. It is full of interesting flavors - the earthy potato next to a piquant bit of pickled beet or sweet apple...very interesting and a nice change. Thanks fluffernutter!
