In college, my best friend and I debated whose mom made the best potato salad. Turns out they were almost identical! Even though I've since tweaked our recipe, it still takes me home again. —Ellie Martin Cliffe, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Have you ever bought marvelous-looking German potato salad, only to discover that it tastes like yesterday's rain? This is my mom's recipe, and it's been a staple in our family for years. The whipping cream makes it taste like no other. —Tracy Zettelmeier, Mukwonago, Wisconsin
This recipe came from Speck’s Restaurant, which was a famous eating establishment in St. Louis from the 1920s through the ‘50s. I ate lunch there almost every day and always ordered the potato salad. When the owner learned I was getting married, he gave me the recipe as a wedding gift! —Violette Klevorn, Washington, Missouri
I adjusted the original recipe for this cold, creamy salad to better suit my tastes. The cilantro comes through nicely...while green chilies and chili powder add a little kick and a hint of color.

Because it's so easy to make and includes basic ingredients I usually have on hand, this salad is one I prepare often to serve two. But if I need more servings, it can be doubled or tripled.
