This is a classic German potato salad that is truly divine and a recipe that was taught to me by a woman I once worked for who had lived in Germany for many years. She ran a small cafe in Hobart and I waitressed as well as made some of my own recipes.
This salad has always been a favourite and I have made it for Germans with great success. One bunch of German backpackers I knew said it reminded them of their Mums’ cooking. What a compliment!
For the full experience, make sure you use floury potatoes – ones that fall apart and go fluffy rather than hold their shape. You can use sturdy, waxy potatoes too, but the softer this is the more authentic the experience.
So here you go, my delectable, delicious Kartoffelsalat.
