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.
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 recipe came from Germany, where it was passed down through our family. My grandmother made it for me when I was a child...my mother modified it...and I added my own touches. It still has authentic German flavor, and it's in demand for every cookout or potluck we attend!
"I've used this recipe for 20 years, and it's still a family favorite," confides Joan Hallford of North Richland Hills, Texas. "It stirs up and cooks in a jiffy—and it tastes just as good as a German potato salad that you fussed all day to make."
