Potato Salad, German Style

Potato Salad, German Style

By Susanna Dany

Ingredients for 6-8 (or more):

  • 10-13 big potatoes
  • 1 apple
  • 3 tomatoes
  • Fresh parsley
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1-2 hard boiled eggs
  • Pickles (optional)
  • Fried bacon (optional)

Sauce:

  • 1 onion
  • 1 lemon
  • 3-4 T honey
  • 2 T mustard
  • 2-3 T vegetable oil
  • 3 T mayonnaise
  • 1-1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
  • Salt and pepper
  • Water (just a little)

Directions:

  1. Boil the potatoes after you peel them, in salted water for about 18 minutes or until they are done. (Do not let them get mushy)
  2. While the potatoes are boiling you can start the sauce:
    • -peel and cut the onion in little pieces (throw them into a big bowl that you will add the other ingredients too)
    • -squeeze the lemon and add the juice
    • -add salt, pepper, honey and mustard and mix it all with a fork
    • -add oil, mayonnaise and yogurt and mix it again
    • -then add as much water as you need for making the sauce a little bit thinner (3T approx.)
  3. If you hurried making the sauce, the potatoes are still boiling now (if not, let them just cool down) Now you have time to cut the other ingredients: the apple, the tomatoes and the parsley and (if you like) hard boiled eggs, yellow pepper, pickles, and/or fried slices of bacon. Throw it all into the sauce and mix it well.
  4. As soon as the potatoes are boiled and as soon as they do not burn your fingers anymore, cut the potatoes into cubes and thrown them into the bowl and mix them with the other ingredients.
  5. You might need a little bit more sauce now or later because the potatoes soak up the sauce. Let the whole salad stand and cool a little bit before you serve it.
