Recipe Notes

8. Swabian Potato Salad Tips

I usually cut the raw, peeled potatoes into slices before cooking. That way I can shorten the cooking process. This also works with the Swabian potato salad and is even faster here because we need thin potato slices. The method saves you time, energy and you don’t have to peel the potatoes hot. You can also cook the raw potato slices softly in a steam cooker or steam pot!
