How to Make Really Good Potato Salad
- Combine vinegar, mustard seed, and celery seed. Let stand at room temperature for several hours. You can crush the seeds, if desired, but it really is not necessary.
- In covered saucepan, cook potatoes until barely tender; 25 to 30 minutes; drain.
- In a large bowl, sprinkle the potatoes with 1/2 of the salt. Add celery, onion, and chopped eggs; toss lightly.
- Combine mayonnaise, remaining salt, and vinegar mixture; add to potatoes; toss to mix. Chill; sprinkle with paprika.
