Austrian Potato Salad No Mayo

~Recipe Revival~

It was a girlfriends summer lunch. Great friends, casual outdoor dinning, laughter and unexpectedly… a lot about Austria.

Where?  The place is one of my breakfast/lunch favorites, Brew Bakers in Middletown, CT.   I love the food at Brew Bakers, it doesn’t disappoint.

Lunch was wonderful, I enjoyed an Ahi Tuna Wrap.  Yet, I tend to notice the little things.  Noteworthy was an unassuming side dish: Austrian Potato Salad. Simple, light, healthy, delicious and addictive.

Austrian Potato Salad – Ditch The Mayo

Austrian Potato Salad Ditch The Mayo

As I went on about my day, I couldn’t stop thinking about having it again. Simple as it was…surely, it must be easy enough to make at home?  Intrigued, I googled it and found many versions, including one from Wolfgang Puck {yet another Austrian}. Wolfgang dressed up his version and used high-end ingredients, {none of which I have on hand}, like Champagne Vinegar and Cornichons {yikes}. Determined, I kept looking….I found one that I believe closely replicates it, and could be made “homestyle” with everyday ingredients.  Being resourceful, Arnold and Wolfgang would approve, so will Chef Josef…I hope.

My heritage?  Yep, you guessed it, me too…half Austrian.  For a creamy and light potato salad recipe, do as we Austrians do: Ditch the mayo.  A perfect fit-foodie take-along to any BBQ.

So there you have it.

How’s your summer going?

      Instructions
      1. Bring potatoes, broth, water, 1 teaspoon salt, sugar, and 1 tablespoon vinegar to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook until potatoes offer no resistance when pierced with paring knife, 15 to 17 minutes.
      2. Remove cover, increase heat to high (so cooking liquid will reduce), and cook 2 minutes.
      3. Drain potatoes in colander set over large bowl, reserving cooking liquid. Set drained potatoes aside.
      4. Pour off and discard all but ½ cup cooking liquid (if ½ cup liquid does not remain, add water to make ½ cup). Whisk remaining tablespoon vinegar, mustard, and oil into cooking liquid.
      5. Add ½ cup cooked potatoes to bowl with cooking liquid mixture and mash with potato masher or fork until thick sauce forms (mixture will be slightly chunky).
      6. Add remaining potatoes, onion, pickle relish and chives, folding gently with rubber spatula to combine. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature, refrigerate leftovers....if you have any. Holy Yum.
      Recipe Notes

      Notes:  The finished salad should be creamy and loose, with chunks of potato that keep their shape but are very tender. To maintain its consistency, don’t refrigerate the salad; it should be served within 4 hours of preparation. Adapted Recipe By: America’s Test Kitchen AutumnPTW.com
