Meet the Cook: Being single (I'm in my 27th year as a teacher), I enjoy sharing favorite dishes at church and family potlucks. This one has won raves whenever I've served it. I've also found it makes a good lunch that's better the second time around! -Inez Senner, Glendive, Montana

"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 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!!"
