Authentic German Potato Salad Recipe
I knew the recipes were AUTHENTIC"
Here is my authentic German potato salad recipe. Or (Kartoffelsalat) as it is known in Germany. Each region in Germany tends to have their own recipe for German potato salad. My mother-in-law gave me this recipe, so it is an authentic German recipe.
My recipe is easy to make and tastes delicious. Served just warm with meatballs, Maultaschen or a slice of grilled meat, this recipe is sure to be a winner. Make a big batch, invite some friends round for a barbecue and enjoy!
My German potato salad recipe is best served warm.
8-10 salad potatoes
Steam the potatoes in their skins until tender. If you have any potatoes from the day before, even better as they are easier to slice. Scrape them and let them cool slightly until just warm.
Chop the onion finely.
Slice the potatoes thinly with a potato slicer or a vegetable knife. Place in a large bowl.
Add the onion and enough warm meat broth
so that the potatoes are quite moist but not sitting in broth! and leave to soak for an hour.
Mix thoroughly. The potato salad should not be too dry, but quite moist.
Serve with your favourite German recipe such as Wiener Schnitzel.
German Potato Salad with Cucumber
Prepare the German potato salad as above. Peel one whole cucumber and thinly slice(but not paper thin). Add at the very end and mix through. Sprinkle one dessert spoon of finely chopped dill over the salad.
