I was tired of the ordinary potato salads served so often in summer, so I came up with this hearty flavorful variation. My family has enjoyed it now for several years, and I'm asked to make it whenever there's a get-together or cookout. I'm sure you'll like it as much as we do.

This creamy and colorful potato salad is always requested for all our summer picnics. It's so quick to prepare, goes with almost anything and is really yummy while still warm—but just as delicious when chilled! —Karen White, Lawrenceburg, Tennessee
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
Meet the Cook: Being single (I'm in my 27th year as a teacher), I enjoy sharing favorite dishes at church and family potlucks. This one has won raves whenever I've served it. I've also found it makes a good lunch that's better the second time around!

I got this recipe from my sister-in-law and I've made it numerous times at the request of friends and co-workers. It's quick and easy, just what I need in my busy life. I learned how to cook from the two best cooks I know - my mom, Arline, and my Grandma Etta. —Ginger Cusano, Sandusky, Ohio
This is a wonderful variation on an American summertime standby. Since Idaho is the potato state and a lot of apples are also grown here, I thought this would be an excellent recipe to represent my area.
