GROWING UP in a German community, I ate this salad often. It's an old traditional dish - I recall my grandmother talking about her mother making this recipe.
As a variation, the "old-timers" in my family enjoy cutting up some boiled potatoes on dinner plates, then serving the warm salad mixture on top of the potatoes.

My mother-in-law shared this recipe with me. The red and yellow peppers add to its flavor and eye-appeal. To speed it to the table, I often use a package of mixed greens.Christine Panzarella, Buena Park, California
"Cool and refreshing"that describes this leftovers salad pretty well! It's full of cold ingredients. Prepare it as a side dish or serve it along with homemade bread as a main course.
I frequently make my salad for family luncheons. That's only appropriatethe recipe was passed down to me by my mom, who got it from her mom!

Whenever I saw my mother mixing up a big bowl of coleslaw, I knew she was expecting a houseful of guests to share our meal. Those were always exciting times for me since I loved company! Besides, this slaw was one of my favorite treats at any time.
"This salad is one of my husband's favorites," writes Diane Wilson of Charlotte, North Carolina. "Just fill the pressure cooker, put the lid on, cook for a short time and a wonderful potato salad is done."
