"Nice standard German Potato Salad recipe. However, I left out the mustard powder and forgot to add in the parsley. Still delicious!"
"This was wonderful! Served at a small gathering and it was almost all gone. Delicious!"
"I made this for a ladies luncheon and it was definately a hit! Everyone took seconds and thirds! I left the skins on the potatoes. So many recipes are overpowering on the vinegar but this one was just right!"
