Berliner Kartoffelsalat / Berliner Potato Salad

READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by Berliner Goere

This is my moms recipe for the mayo based version that you will find all over northern Germany, while southern Germany prefers the vinegar based/hot version. Make sure to let the salad rest for at least 2 hours so that all the flavors can blend and soak into the potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Make sure onion, pickles and apple are chopped the same size.
  2. Boil the whole potatoes with their skins on until tender about 20-30 minutes.
  3. Remove from pot and let rest until cool enough to handle but still warm, then peel and dice into preferred size.
  4. In a bowl combine all the ingredients except potatoes.
  5. Put potatoes into a big bowl, pour"sauce" over them and stir together carefully (potatoes break apart easily while still warm).
  6. Cover bowl and let rest in fridge for at least 2 hours (overnight is even better).
  7. Taste test and add more pickle juice, salt, pepper, sugar or mayo if/as needed.
