Warm Potato Salad with Beer and Mustard Dressing

recipe
Known as Kartoffelsalat, this side dish is popular throughout Germany. Use pale lager when preparing the salad, as a darker beer will discolor the potatoes. We enjoyed the variety of flavors from the different types of onions, but you can use all yellow onions, if you prefer. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.
