German Potato Salad
(The Kupser Family )

printer friendly

This style of German potato salad is simple and popular in Germany as well as with the Kupser Family, it is very simple but it very satisfying in taste. The flavor develops as it sits in the fridge. It is best with a waxy potato such as a red skin potato or Yukon gold as opposed to a russet...Stephen Block

1 lb. Yukon Gold Potatoes (or other waxy potato)
2/3 cup diced onion ( one medium onion)
1/4 Cup oil ( olive or good quality oil)
2 tbsp. vinegar (cider or other vinegar of your choice)

I have recently discovered that the Yukon gold potatoes have a buttery taste and really work well in this salad. It is up to your taste how much vinegar and spices you want.

We boil potatoes in the skin until tender, peel and cool.
We then slice the potato into a bowl, dice a large onion in too.
We then salt and pepper. Then we mix vinegar and oil and mix in.
this is the only time I can use a good bit of pepper because Louie does not like hot spices.
