"What should we bring with us to the next BBQ?" That's a question we often get asked if we're invited somewhere ... the answer our best friend Fred usually gives is : Torsten's potato salad, of course!!
We have to admit it is nothing special or extraordinary. Torsten likes to have his potato salad with lots of flavor and with enough but not too much mayonnaise. Torsten thinks he is a bit traumatized when it comes to potato salad ... his granny Lore never made her Potato Salad (although with homemade mayonnaise) the way he wanted it. Usually everything granny made was super delicious, but her potato salad - sorry granny - wasn't that good. And he never got tired of letting her know that! ;)
Because of that he always tried to make the perfect german potato salad until he wrote down this recipe, and everyone loves it so we prepare this salad again and again...
1,5 kg waxy potatoes
300 g bacon, cubed
2 red oniona, fine cubed
500 ml broth
1 egg yolk
100 ml olive oil
500 ml rapeseed oil
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp mustard
1 pinch chili flakes
1-2 dash vinegar
1-2 tsp sugar
salt & pepper
your favorit herbs(usually we change them from time to time ...)
At our first attempts we didn't give broth over the potatoes. So we had to make the salad always a day earlier and needed too much mayonnaise. Now, after we prepare it like Sascha's mother told us you don't need so much time and can eat it right away.
Oh ... and if you don't have so much spices and herbs at home you can also get a really tasty mayonnaise ... just use a salad seasoning to spice up your mayonnaise.
So we definitely know what to bring with us to the next BBQ Party!
How do you make your potato salad? There are so many variations ... we want to know yours.
At the end everyone prepares it the way you like it the most ...
