Directions

  1. Place the potatoes into a large pot, and fill with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and cook for about 20 minutes, or until easily pierced with a fork. Drain, and let them cool slightly. If you wish to peel them, do it while they are still hot. It will be much easier. Allow to cool completely, then slice thinly.
  2. Place the potatoes in a large bowl. Dissolve the chicken bouillon in boiling water, and pour in with the potatoes. Gently stir in the vinegar, egg, pepper, mayonnaise and parsley. Mix in the olive oil last. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving. This salad is best at room temperature.

This is a really good recipe. Not to argue too much with PickyCook (and I do appreciate the feedback), but you REALLY have to watch the mayonnaise. 2 teaspoons is really the absolute most you should put in it. A dab is better. Also, something else I've noticed - make SURE you use a good quality olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Since that's the only flavoring, you'll notice the quality. And lastly - it's good to make a day or two in advance. The flavors get more depth as the salad "ages". I made a batch the night before for a cookout, and it was good, but then I ate some left overs the day *after* the cookout and it was just a lot better. Anyway, I think I may add bacon next time. I hope other people try this and offer feedback.

following the directions exactly, i found this recipe to be bland, unattractive and had a very "mayonnaisey" taste to it, even though you didn't use much mayonnaise. maybe add scallions?

I am from Schwabenland in Germany and grew up on this potato salad. In this potato salad there is no mayonnaise or eggs in it.

I did as Arkali suggested. I enjoyed it. Yes I did add bacon.

This was awful! I followed the recipe exactly. The balsamic vinegar makes it turn a brownish color and the end product does not look very appetizing. I was very disappointed. Now that I wasted my time making this today, I now have buy some store made potato salad to take to my potluck event today!

Growing up, I had this at all family gatherings. A perfect thing they made a barques and other events.

I really enjoyed this recipe. It is very different from the "normal" potato salad. The first time I made this, we tried it warm (i'm so impatient!) My husband liked it best warm. But I thought it was better the next day at room temp. My favorite thing about this recipe is not worrying about keeping it chilled during a cookout or picnic!

The flavors didn't blend well, family wouldn't eat it. It sat in the fridge and went to waste.
