Baked German Potato Salad Recipe
What makes this German potato salad so different is that it's sweet instead of tangy. During the holidays, my family has an annual ham dinner, and I always prepare it. The first time I took it to work, people kept coming out of their offices to find out what smelled so good. By lunch, it was gone. Now I make a double batch to take to work! —Julie Myers, Lexington, Ohio
