Instructions with Tips from Chef Thomas Sixt.
Potato salad with mayo recipe with step by step photos by chef Thomas Sixt.
For the potato salad
|250||g||Salad potatoes (washed, peeled)|
|80||g||peas (Fresh or frozen)|
|4||pc||Chicken eggs (or quail eggs)|
|100||g||sweet and sour pickled vegetables (Peppers, pearl onions, cucumbers, artichokes)|
|1||tsp.||Dijon mustard (I also use medium hot mustard)|
|2-4||twigs||Thyme fresh (oder Thymian getrocknet)|
Boil the chicken eggs and quench them.
Halve the eggs and cut them into quarters. Cut half of the eggs into small pieces, set aside remaining eggs for decoration. Place cut eggs in a large bowl. Tip: I always cut the eggs yolks and whites separately.
Wash and peel the salad potatoes.
Cut peeled, raw potatoes into uniform 2 cm cubes.
Boil the prepared potato cubes in spicy salted water.
Check the cooking point of the potato cubes, drain and let cool. Put the potatoes in a bowl.
Pulp fresh peas or prepare frozen peas. Cook peas in salted water until al dente, drain. Allow peas to cool and add to potatoes.
Remove peppers or other sweet and sour vegetables from jar, drain well and cut into bite-sized pieces. Add the diced peppers to the potatoes. Optionally, provide some peas and diced peppers extra for decoration from the plate.
Prepare mayonnaise yourself or prepare ready-made mayo. For the mayo itself there is an extra tutorial with video. Add the mayo to the salad ingredients in the bowl.
Season the salad ingredients with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, lemon juice and sugar and mix. Let stand for 10 minutes.
For the light topping, mix sour cream and creme fraiche with lemon juice. Season with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper and a little sugar.
Season salad again just before serving. Add the topping on the side. Place the sliced eggs on top. Add decorative vegetables, sprinkle with herbs and serve quickly. Enjoy your meal!
