German Potato Salad
The easiest and tastiest potato salad ever. You'll only need four ingredients (the potatoes not counted). Important: Needs to be prepared a few hours before being served.
- 1,5 to 2 kg small potatoes
- 5 small pickled gherkins
- 1 medium sized white onion
- 1/4 apple
- 1 jar mayonaise
- salt and pepper I use pink Himalayan salt
- 1/3 cup gherkin brine from the jar
In a large pot bring the unpeeled potatoes to a boil. Simmer until they are tender.
Drain off the water and set it aside. Wait until the potatoes are cool enough to handle.
Now peel off the skin and cut into small cubes.
Place the potato cubes into a large bowl.
Cut the gherkins and the onion into small cubes and add to the potatoes.
Lastly, dice a 1/4 of an apple finely and add. This is our secret ingredient and makes the salad even more flavorsome.
The Salad Sauce aka Dressing
In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, some gherkin brine, salt, and freshly ground pepper until smooth.
Pour over the salad ingredients and mix with a large spoon until well combined.
Cover the salad with cling wrap and put it into the fridge.
Half an hour before serving take it out of the fridge and serve at room temperature.
Add more salt and pepper if needed.
I can't stretch it enough, this salad has to be prepared a few hours before you want to serve it so all the flavors can develop.
In saying that, it should be served at room temperature.
Also, please check if you need to add more seasoning before serving.
This German potato salad is perfect for your next barbecue, tailgate party, or summer dinner.
