Thanks for your recipe, miker! I should have asked you for this in December...with Mom being out of it, the family was in a panic about our traditional German Potato Salad on Christmas Eve, as Mom always makes it. I'm her official taste-tester, and was able to calm my sister in laws down by coming up with a version that was close to Mom's.

Will definitely try this one!! Thanks!!

Blessed beyond measure!
