German Hot Noodle Salad

 German Hot Noodle Salad
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
