How to Make Real German Potato Salad (swabian)


  1. Boil the unpeeled potatoes in salty water in a pot. The size of the potatoes decides the cooking point. Its mostly about 15-20 minutes, just check it with a knife (put the knive in the potatoe, if it get off easily, they are ready).
  2. Peel the warm (!) potatoes and cut it into pieces in a bowl. Not to thin and not to thick - 0,08 - 0,12 in I'd say and not more then 0,2 inch. Peel and chop the onions. If you don't want raw onions in your salad you can boil them a little in the Meatsoup before.
  3. Put the onions, salt, pepper, freshly gratet nutmeg, warm (!) Meatsoup and about 2-3 tablespoons vinegar and 2 tablespoons oil over the potatoes and stir it. Now check if something is missing like vineager or salt.
  4. let the salat go for about one hour while you can stir it from time to time. The salat have to "smack" when you stir it and the slices have to "shine". You can also serve it quite after you've done it, but in my oppinion the salat gets more taste if you give him time.
