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.
