I was looking for a german salad recipe like the one at one of our favorite restaurants. My husband and I did like this one but couldn't finish our portion because of the cider vinegar taste. ...

very yummy and tangy. Easy to make too

Wow, I was suprised at how easy this was and how very tasty it came out. I thought about adding some bacon, but the simplicity is the secret. Thank you!!!!
