I admit that I don’t have potato and cucumber salad very often. However, recently I really wanted a good portion of this classic, so I created my own recipe for it. In this post, I’ll show you how to prepare this delicious potato and cucumber salad.

Potatoes Cucumber Salad

When I was in Hamburg for a few days at the beginning of this year, of course, I couldn’t avoid eating fresh fish from the Nordic seas. Since I’m honestly not a big fish eater, I usually get a round of fried fish with crispy breading and lots of tartar sauce. I was also served a wonderful potato and cucumber salad, which for me was the highlight of the whole dish. Now – a few months later – I’ve finally tried the same combination for myself. Here you can see the result.

For my potato and cucumber salad I wanted to create a sweetish-sour note, which was refined with small onion cubes and lots of dill. So I threw boiled potatoes together with thinly sliced cucumber slices and shallots in a large bowl and mixed a marinade of linseed oil, vinegar, salad herbs, dill and a little sugar. The whole thing has to go through a bit, of course, so that all the flavors unfold and the starch of the potatoes spreads onto the sauce.
