My hot German potato salad recipe is a creamy mix of potatoes, cream, vinegar and parsely. A creamy potato salad recipe that is delicious served with fish or grilled meat.
The Germans are great fans of potato salad and each region, and family, has their own favourite recipe. There is quite a difference in taste in the North to the South. In the North they tend to use Mayonnaise, in the South a broth.
German Potato Salad is very popular and unique most probably coming from using left over boiled potatoes. You might like to add ham or speck (German bacon.) So if you ever have lots of left over boiled spuds, you know what to do with them!
As I said each family has their favourite so experiment a little until you come up with your family's favourite.
Once you have mastered the art of making German potato salad, you will find it is so versatile and is a perfect side dish to meat and fish. It is also great in the summer to serve at a barbecue.
750g potatoes, firm salad potatoes
1 dessert spoon oil
1/4 litre cold milk
3/8 litre hot broth
salt and white pepper
4 dessert spoons cream
4 dessert spoons white vinegar
4 dessert spoons parsley
Cook the potatoes in their skins either in a pan of water or steam them until tender. Keep them warm in the pan.
Heat the butter and oil in a pan, add the flour and stir briskly. Add the milk gradually, stirring constantly until the sauce is free from lumps. Add the hot broth, stir briskly and simmer for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile scrape the potatoes and slice them. Add to the pan and flavour with salt and pepper.
Add the cream and vinegar. Just before serving mix through the finely chopped parsley.
Serve with your favourite German recipe.
