I make this salad all the time for bigger parties and everybody loves it. It can be served with dinner or with little sandwiches on the side. It is delicious.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Cool, tangy, with an assortment of textures and flavors this is way better than your typical potato salad. Carrots add a pop of color and, along with the apples, give this salad a light sweetness. The celery root and tangy pickles give the dish a bright flavor. It's an unusual, but delicious, salad for your next party. We suggest making this the night before so the flavors really have time to work their magic. The Test Kitchen

They pack protein into a salad, are a fantastic on-the-go breakfast and a necessity for making deviled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are fantastic but are a bit intimidating to cooks....
