Recipe - Cold Potato and Bockwurst Salad
New potatoes has always been one of my big favourites, especially if they are boiled the Swedish way with lots of dill. Once cooked I normally manage to eat a couple before they even make it to a plate. If there are some left over I quite often nibble them one by one until they're gone. Cold new potatoes rock! :)
If, against all odds, enough of them should survive until the next meal I quite often use the them to make a cold potato salad. Normally that means freestyling it in a proper way. I take what I got at home and try to mix and match to make some interesting combinations. There isn't really much you can do to ruin a potato salad and the combinations are almost endless. As you'll notice in the recipe below, there are no rules - just mix it together as you feel is right.
This time I used crème fraîche but you can just as well use mayonnaise, it's just a matter of what you got at home and what your taste tells you to do. As for the bockwurst, you should be able to find that in most supermarkets these days but replace it with hot dogs or something similar if you feel like it.
Having talked this much about new potatoes I'm feeling the craving rise so I better get this recipe sorted any myself down to the shops for some potatoes ;)
Boiled new potatoes, sliced fairly thinly
Bockwurst, sliced fairly thinly
Spring onions (scallions), thinly sliced
Red onion, finely diced
German sharp mustard
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Add in enough crème fraîche to coat it all then stir in enough mustard to give it a bit of a kick. Season to taste.
