Book Club Recipe: German Potato Salad

My husband’s great-grandparents came over to the U.S. from Germany and brought great recipes with them to hand down to the family. Here’s a recipe for potato salad that I use often for book club gatherings, neighborhood events or any other event where I have to contribute a dish.

German Potato Salad

Serves 4 to 6

  • 6 to 10 medium red potatoes
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • ½ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon fresh tarragon
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley
  • 2 teaspoons capers
  • sprinkle of green or red onions

Wash the potatoes, then cut them in quarters. Boil potatoes in plenty of water for about 10 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork. Drain and put the potatoes in a large serving bowl.

Mix the olive oil, vinegar and all herbs together. Pour over the potatoes and mix with a spoon. Break up any larger potato pieces. Add salt and pepper to taste. The oil will soak in as the potatoes cool.
