Germany Salad

Guten tag, gourmets! In Germany, they love potatoes, meat and beer! Germany salad with potatoes, beef tongue and radish combines all the German love!

Germany potato salad

In Germany, many varieties of potatoes are grown and there are varieties for salads. If you do not live in Germany, then you can use potatoes that you have at home or in a store. Potatoes should contain enough starch to make a beautiful crispy crust when frying. We make a German salad with a dressing of mustard, lemon juice, wine vinegar, honey and olive oil. The dressing gives the salad a light sourness and a stable taste, which reveals the salad in a special perspective.

How to cook a Germany salad?

The ingredients for salad dressing are very simple. Salt, ground black pepper, white wine vinegar (can be replaced with light apple cider vinegar), lemon juice, Dijon mustard and honey. Mix everything together in a jar, cover with a lid, and shake the jar several times to mix the ingredients.

Main Ingredients

Beef boiled tongue thinly sliced, boiled fried potatoes until crisp, thinly sliced radishes and pickled cucumber, fresh lettuce or Iceberg lettuce leaves.

We put everything on a plate and pour a small amount of salad dressing.
