(Norsk versjon: Verdens beste potetsalat)
I absolutely love to grill, and I make my own marinades and sides. Now that BBQ season has long since commenced, I think a BBQ-series on my blog will do just nicely. This week it is potato salad time! This potato salad is great both served luke warm, or cold, and naturally goes perfectly with grilled foods.
- 1 kilo potatoes
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 Chinese garlic, minced
- 1 glass pickles, chopped (save the brine!)
- 1 small glass of capers, drained
- 150 grams mayonnaise
- 300 grams sour cream or crème fraiche
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Fresh herbs, if you have it (dill, parsley, lemon balm, coriander, oregano, basil etc.)
Cook the potatoes whole, leave the skin on.
As the potatoes boil, mix mayonnaise, garlic, sour cream/crème fraiche, onion, capers and coarsely chopped gherkins.
Chop the cooked, warm potatoes and pour the brine from the gherkins/pickles over for it to soak into the potatoes. Mix everything together and season with salt and pepper and the fresh herbs.
The warm potatoes make the whole salad go lukewarm, and it can be served straight away. Or you can refrigerate it before serving if you prefer.
