German Hot Noodle Salad Recipe

Here's a tasty take-off on German potato salad. It's flavored like the traditional side dish but uses noodles in place of potatoes. I always loved my mother's German potato salad, but once she served this noodle salad instead, I was hooked. —Gordon Kremer, Sacramento, California

"Very much enjoyed this. I grilled up bratwurst to serve with it and ended up adding it to the salad - it was great!!"

"I have made this recipe several times with positive comments. For a change, I use small salad potatoes that have been cooked, peeled, cooled, and sliced in place of the noodles. It tastes like authentic German potato salad."
