German Potato Salad

The humble spud is lifted to new levels in this tasty addition to any summer barbeque or picnic.

The trick is in the tangy additions that add depth to the flavours.

Nutritionally, the boiled potatoes that form the bulk of the salad are a healthier option than fried, providing carbohydrates for energy plus some minerals for your nerves and blood. The fried bacon and onion add a lot of taste with only a small amount of extra fat.


1 kg of potatoes unpeeled, boiled and drained
4 Rindless bacon rashers
1 medium red onion thinly sliced
1 tablespoon black mustard seeds
2/3 cup finely chopped fresh flat leaf parsley

Sweet Dijon Dressing

¼ cup Cider vinegar

1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
½ tablespoon Caster Sugar

You can experiment with other ingredients too - try chili flakes, chopped coriander or finely-chopped spring onions.
