The German Potato salad

The German Potato salad was and always will be one of my favorites. With German sausage or Leberkasse and potato salad, just thinking about it makes my mouth water. I often make potato salad for my family; I love making it with BBQ or a pot roast. Often it is an added side dish to our holiday dinners.

As I am getting married this week, life has been just crazy, and if I were to cater to my own wedding this dish would definitely be a part of it.  I am taking this time off from cooking and having my wedding catered though.

This recipe is something I have never shared with anyone, so this hopefully will be a treat for you as much as it is for us.

Maybe it will become one of your favorite side dishes as well.
What I like to do is get Yukon gold potatoes and boil them whole until tender (but don’t overcook them otherwise they will get very mushy). I like to do this the day before so they can completely cool down.

You can make as much or as little as you like. I usually don’t weigh my potatoes, instead, I count them.

I like to use between 10 and 15 potatoes depending on how much salad I want to make.

So, let’s get started:

In a bowl combine:

  • 1 small organic yellow or purple onion, finely diced
  • ½ bunch of fresh organic parsley, finely chopped
  • ½ cup Organic Olive oil
  • Organic Apple cider vinegar to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard
  • Sea salt
  • Black Pepper

Mix all ingredients together

  • Add 10-15 cooked and completely cooled Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and sliced (I like to slice them right into the mixture in the bowl).
  • Add 1 cup of organic chicken stock freshly boiled, pour it over the salad and mix everything around.

At this point, you can taste the salad, see if you need to add more Olive oil or Vinegar or seasoning, even mustard.

The salad tastes best after resting for a little time, as it absorbs all the flavors.
What I love so much about this salad as well is that it makes great leftovers. It is one of those salads that tastes the best the next day. This salad keeps nice for up to a week in the fridge.
I love eating my leftover salad with a good ham sandwich, oh so yummy!

I hope you will enjoy this salad and make it one of your favorite side dishes too.

Thanks so much for stopping in, I always love seeing you here.
