We recently visited a new eatery in Melbourne called Hophaus Bier Bar Grill and rediscovered our love of German food.
We decided there and then to create the perfect potato salad and this is it! Quick and easy and utterly delicious, served warm it goes well with just about everything.
You can add additional ingredients like chopped egg if desired or omit the bacon and add in some crunchy celery and it becomes a lovely vegetarian salad…
We enjoyed it with grilled German bratwurst sausages and sauerkraut with hot mustard.
8 baby potatoes
½ tub light sour cream
3 rashers bacon finely sliced
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill
2 spring onions finely sliced
2 tablespoons cornichons sliced (small pickled gherkins readily available in supermarkets)
Salt & pepper to taste
Cut each baby potato into 3 slices (or 4 if they are a bit bigger)
Place in a microwave proof bowl with ½ cup of water, cover and microwave for about 8-10 mins or until tender
In a non-stick pan, sauté the bacon until crispy and set aside
Meanwhile in a large bowl combine the other ingredients
Throw in the bacon and drained potatoes and toss thoroughly
Serve warm with some additional dill fronds as garnish
Bon Appetit! 🙂
