This is a nice change from the regular potato salads. It is the closest recipe I have that reminds me of going to the Friday fish frys when Catholics were not allowed to eat meat on Friday. All the local bars had kitchens and a room in the back where the owner's wife cooked the dinner. One week it would be regular potato salad, the next week German Potato Salad. I was always hoping for the German! Hope you enjoy...
