Kartoffelsalat und Würstchen


For Kartoffelsalat:

  • 1 kg potatoes (waxy potatoes work best)
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

For Würstchen:

  • 6-8 German sausages (Bratwurst or Wiener)
  • Mustard for serving


For Kartoffelsalat:

  1. Wash the potatoes thoroughly, and peel them if desired. Boil the potatoes in salted water until they are tender but still firm. Drain and let them cool slightly.
  2. While the potatoes are cooling, prepare the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk together the chopped onion, vegetable oil, white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.
  3. Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, slice them into thin rounds.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, gently combine the sliced potatoes and the dressing. Make sure the potatoes are well-coated with the dressing.
  5. Allow the Kartoffelsalat to marinate for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld. Before serving, sprinkle chopped fresh parsley over the top.

For Würstchen:

  1. Grill or pan-fry the German sausages until they are browned and cooked through. This usually takes about 10-15 minutes, depending on the size of the sausages.
  2. Alternatively, you can simmer the sausages in water for about 10 minutes, then finish them on the grill or in a pan to get a nice crisp exterior.
  3. Serve the Würstchen hot with mustard on the side.

To Serve:

  1. Arrange a portion of Kartoffelsalat on each plate.
  2. Place grilled or pan-fried Würstchen on the side.
  3. Garnish with additional chopped parsley if desired.
  4. Enjoy your delicious Kartoffelsalat und Würstchen with friends and family!

This classic German meal is perfect for gatherings and brings together the hearty flavors of potato salad and sausages. Guten Appetit!
