Deluxe German Potato Salad Recipe

Deluxe German Potato Salad Recipe

I make this salad for all occasions—it goes well with any kind of meat. I often take this salad to potlucks, and there's never any leftover. The celery, carrots and dry mustard are a special touch not usually found in traditional German potato salad. —Betty Perkins, Hot Springs, Arkansas
