Taste the World: Bavarian Potato Salad

I’ve shared a vegan version of the Persian potato salad (Olivieh) with mayo on the blog already, so it’s about time for a Bavarian potato salad, which is typically made with stock, vinegar, and oil. This one is super easy to make, tastes great as is or with pan seared tofu, veggie sausages or this barbecue glazed lentil loaf for Christmas.

I could eat potatoes every single day, in any given way: baked, mashed, roasted or likewise in the form of potato salad. By the way: because this salad is eaten cold, it’s the perfect dish for on the go or meal prepping in general.
