Kartofelsalat (Light German Potato Salad)


We were thinking of making a low calorie version of the potato salad by omitting the mayonnaise, so the first thing that came into mind was to mimic the Bavarian kartofelsalat. Our salad, though, turned out to be a little dry for some reason--maybe because of the potatoes? We've actually had this problem many-a-times with potatoes in Hong Kong. They're very starchy and disintegrate at the slightest threat of boiling water.


A beef stock based sauce is usually added to the classical kartofelsalat, which most likely would've helped to moisten the salad, but we didn't have it and were hungry, so maybe next time!
