Not sure if this is cultural appropriation, but I call it German potato salad with no intention to appropriate anything… It’s just how I call it. I guess I could also ask my German friend Angelika to see if it resembles anything she’s grown up with…
Anyway, this German potato salad has only 5 ingredients: potatoes, cornichons (gherkins), capers, mayo and Dijon mustard; it’s very easy to put together and tastes really really good.
I usually serve it with some German-style sausages and we have a dinner. My kids love it!
You will only need the before mentioned ingredients (potatoes, cornichons (gherkins), tapers, mayo and mustard – and salt and pepper, of course). Boil the potatoes and let them cool, slice the cornichons and mix everything together. Couldn’t get any easier.
I like to eat it on the cool side, so I usually pop mine in the fridge before eating it.
