Warm Potato Salad


Germany is a split country - not just into East and West, following the Cold War, but also into North and South, depending on whether you smother your potato salad in cold mayonnaise (North) or serve it as nature intended it: warmed by fresh beef stock, with a hint of chives for decoration. It's a simple dish that doesn't require many ingredients and goes with many of the traditional southern German dishes, such as Schnitzel or Frankfurters. It might surprise you, but served with sausages, potato salad is the most popular dish at a German Christmas Eve!

What you will need

3 pounds small salad potatoes

1 onion, finely chopped

1 teaspoon dijon mustard, or similar

7 tablespoons white wine vinegar

300 milliliters beef or vegetable stock

4 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/4 bunch chives, finely chopped

salt and pepper, to taste
