Microwave German Potato Salad has big flavor for a quick salad. "The first time I tried this easy side dish I was impressed and had to have the recipe," recalls Barbara Erdmann of West Allis, Wisconsin. "That's what happens to most people who taste it.

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.

Now I make a double batch to take to work! —Julie Myers, Lexington, Ohio
Meet the Cook: I have a taste for beans and find them a great companion to potatoes. A versatile side dish - add ham to make the salad a meal in itself - this one's among the recipes that I've invented myself.
