What makes this German potato salad so different is that it's sweet instead of tangy. During the holidays, my family has an annual ham dinner, and I always prepare it.

Now I make a double batch to take to work! —Julie Myers, Lexington, Ohio
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!

I make this salad for all occasions—it goes well with any kind of meat. I often take this salad to potlucks, and there's never any left over. The celery, carrots and dry mustard are a special touch not usually found in traditional German potato salad. —Betty Perkins, Hot Springs, Arkansas
This recipe came from Speck’s Restaurant, which was a famous eating establishment in St. Louis from the 1920s through the ‘50s. I ate lunch there almost every day and always ordered the potato salad. When the owner learned I was getting married, he gave me the recipe as a wedding gift! —Violette Klevorn, Washington, Missouri
My grandmother, Mama, made this potato salad for every family gathering at her home. Every relative would arrive with their specialties in hand. She never wrote it down, so I had to re-create the recipe from memory. Years later, it's just about right. —Charlene Chambers, Ormond Beach, Florida
"This salad is one of my husband's favorites," writes Diane Wilson of Charlotte, North Carolina. "Just fill the pressure cooker, put the lid on, cook for a short time and a wonderful potato salad is done."
