Easy: Creamy Potato Salad

If you grew up in Germany, you probably grew up with parties, barbecues and picnics where creamy potato salad was served. Every family has their own recipe (or buys terrible potato salad in big buckets at the supermarket) and the only ingredients that all of them have in common are potatoes and mayonaise. Other ingredients include Fleischwurst (a German type of bologna sausage), pickles, apples, onions, bacon, garlic, scallions, peppers, beef stock, cucumbers, beets, hard boiled eggs, and parsley. Some of these ingredients are excluded in my recipe for obvious reasons. ;)

The boyfriend requested I'd make potato salad for our birthday party - with his mother's recipe. So here is the vegan version of it!



  • Clean the potatoes and cook them in their skin. 

  • While the potatoes are cooking, peel the carrots and cut them in small cubes. Cook them briefly in salt water (so they don't get mushy).

  • Cut the pickles in small pieces.

  • Cut the onions in fine cubes.

  • Once the potatoes are cooked, put them in a bowl with cold water and peel them. Slice the potatoes.

  • While the potatoes are cooking, make mayo - unless you have prepared it in advance. 
  • If desired, mix in some plain soy yoghurt = more sauce, less fat.
  • Season mayo/yoghurt with salt and pepper (unless you're already happy with it).

  • Put all of the ingredients in a bowl.
  • Mix well. 


Enjoy and share with people you love!
Works great with lentil balls!
