Uschi's Potato Salad
Uschi's potato salad is named after a German guest/friend from a years ago. While I was working at Augusta Kleinbosch Guest Farm years ago, the neighbours Christoff and Uschi, booked a Braai (BBQ) evening with us at the Farm. On the day she came to see me about the menu for the evening, she brought this recipe with as one of the dishes to be made. We called it Uschi's Potato Salad. We did a test a few days before the braai (BBQ) - she wanted it to taste the best it could be- and it turned out a great hit at her braai party.
Uschi's potato salad I dedicate to her, they moved away to Somerset West and sadly I cannot seem to find her. My German guests and friend I attend to value a lot. They always welcomed my food and gave me compliments. Something I still value today and I really miss. They made a huge positive difference in my life as a chef. Those were the best career days of my life. Cooking for foreigners always gave me a lot of joy and sadly, and truly I must say, I find to work for South African Employers extremely difficult. I will dedicate an entire Blog post to that subject soon as it lays very hard on my heart.
Back to Uschi's potato salad, the meditteranean potatoes were at that time stocked by Woolworths, it just changed packaging I see. This recipe is easy to make and very delicious, I would call this a summer variation of potato salad.
Perfect for the upcoming Braai day on National Heritage Day.
I raise my glass to Uschi and her wonderful potato salad!
