Warm German potato salad

    40 min

    Is there anything better than freshly made potato salad? With sausages or pork, it's a dream! This is my mother's recipe, originally from Bavaria. It's a deliciously different way to prepare potatoes.

    Serves: 10 

    • 2kg waxy potatoes
    • 1 small onion, finely chopped
    • 250ml concentrated stock (made from half a stock cube)
    • 5 tablespoons vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons oil
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • sugar to taste
    • chopped fresh chives (optional)

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Boil the potatoes in a large pan until soft. Drain and let cool slightly. Peel while still warm and cut into thin slices.
    2. In a small bowl, stir the hot stock with oil, vinegar, salt and sugar.
    3. Put the warm potato slices in a salad bowl, toss with the chopped onion and pour the hot stock over them. The potatoes should still be warm so they absorb the liquid better.
    4. Leave to stand for 5 minutes and season with salt and pepper. If desired, sprinkle with chopped chives and serve warm.

    Used different ingredients. add some crispy fried bacon or some diced gherkin.  -  28 Feb 2011


    This turned out really well and better than expected! I did not use any extra salt, oil and sugar. I fried the onions before adding to the potatoes. It was a lovely salad to have with German brats.  -  23 Jul 2013
