Reviews for Hot German Potato Salad
"This is my go to recipe for German potato salad. Love it!! The only thing I do different is add a little bit of chopped hard boiled eggs. I sometimes cook it an extra bit in a casserole dish in the oven, that way it stays good and hot when I take it to a gathering."
"I was pleasantly surprised when I made this for my granddaughter's class. Every time I have tried this from friends I did not care for it. This recipe actually very good."
"I love German potato salad, and this recipe does not disappoint. The only change I made was to leave out the celery seed (not a favorite ingredient). Try it!!"
