A great change from the usual potato salad, reminds me of one my mother used to make. This was a nice side dish to the pork chops I grilled for dinner. A definite keeper!

Baking this gives it a different taste than our usual German Potato Salad. We found it very good, but it does require extra time.

Took this to a potluck where it was a hit. One of my friends said his German part was very happy. For me I will cut back on the sugar a little next time but it was great. No problem doing it in a crock pot.
