Potato salad, central european style

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ pounds Red potatoes
⅓ cup Finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons Diced dill pickle
1 teaspoon Caraway seeds
1 teaspoon Paprika, hot Hungarian preferred
1½ tablespoon Spicy brown mustard
1½ tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
1 tablespoon Lemon juice
½ tablespoon Vinegar, sherry vinegar preferred
⅓ cup Vegetable oil
½ teaspoon Salt or more to taste

1. Cut potatoes in half and steam or boil until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine onion, dill pickle, caraway seeds, paprika and both mustards. Using a whisk, stir in lemon juice and vinegar, then stir in oil. Add salt, taste and correct seasoning as desired.

3. Peel cooked potatoes, cut into medium cubes or small slices and immediately combine with dressing in the bowl. Set aside until serving, preferably at room temperature. 4. Serve with cold cuts, sausages or frankfurters. If desired, dice cold cuts and mix into salad or add ½ cup diced cooked pork shank (see previous recipe).
