Last Spring, I ate at The Beach House on Grand Island, NY. They served the best German Potato salad I've ever eaten. This recipe is a combination of several from Zaar, tweeked to my own tastes, and reduced to feed 2 with left overs and comes pretty close to what The Beach House served. If you are looking for a heart healthy and waistline friendly recipe, this is definately NOT it, so plan ahead!
- 4 potatoes (Yukon Gold are best)
- 1⁄2 medium onion, peeled and sliced

- 1⁄2 tablespoon mustard seeds
- 1⁄4 teaspoon celery seed
