My favorite German potato salad:
Swabian Potato Salad
4 large, boiled potatoes,
When cooled, peel and slice them thin
(If possible prefer waxy potatoes
for making a salad. Mealy potatoes may
break while cooking.)
200 ml hot beef broth (or vegetable stock)
1 tsp mustard
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tbsp wine vinegar
1 tsp sunflower oil
salt, white pepper according to your taste
Mix together: vinegar, oil, mustard, onion, salt and pepper
1 tbsp. of beef base with 1 cup hot water. Pour the liquid mixture over the potatoes and mix thoroughly.
Enjoy your salad! The potato salad tastes best when it is still slightly warm.
Special Tip: with self made beef broth it tastes even better, if you have the time just try it...
