"I thought it was very easy and very tasty. I nice change from the traditional southern potato salad. I added more eggs though and sautéed green onions and a little yellow bell pepper thinly sliced to add a little more color. Very good."

"Home run with the family! Traditionally they have not been fans of German potato salads, but everyone LOVED this recipe!

I tweaked it to include one pound of fry pan cooked bacon. I also used sugar in the raw instead of the processed white sugar."
