Delicious Potato Salad With Yoghurt Cream

Potatoes are German staple food besides bread. I don´t cook potatoes everyday as my kitchen is international. Well, I cook mostly Filipino, Italian and German food but still potatoes are not my favorites. For me, it takes time to peel the potatoes and to save the time, I boiled plenty so I have lots of leftover for the next days potato salad or Bratkartoffeln, a hearty German fried potatoes. The other day, I made potato salad with yoghurt cream instead of using  mayonnaise and I loved it as it was not so heavy for my tummy.


Ingredients: 3-4 persons

10 leftover boiled peeled potatoes, cut in cubes

1 piece of fried Bratwurst (you can use any sausage you want)

2 pieces of pickled gherkins

10 to 12 tablespoons of yoghurt salad cream

2-3 tablespoons of pickled gherkins water

1 small onion, cubes (optional)

2 tablespoons of canned peas

1 boiled egg, cubes

salt and white  pepper powder

chili powder (optional)

chopped parsley


How to make the potato yoghurt salad:

  1. Put the leftover cubes potatoes into a deep bowl.
  2. Cut the gherkins and Bratwurst sausage  into cubes.
  3. Add the pickled gherkins, sausage, canned peas, egg cubes, onions and chopped parsley to the potatoes.
  4. Mix the yoghurt salad cream, gherkins water, salt, chili and white pepper powder in a small bowl.
  5. Add the yoghurt salat sauce to the potato mixture.
  6. Mix well and taste it. You can add more gherkins water, salt and pepper if you want to.
  7. Let it stay for at least  few hours in the fridge. Letting it stay overnight is better.
  8. Serve with vegetable salad and  with boiled sausages like the German Bockwurst.


Substitutes for some of the ingredients:

  • Yoghurt salat cream——–mayonnaise or miracle whip

Potato salad is commonly served for any celebrations like birthdays and  anniversaries by the Germans. In fact it is also commonly served with heated Bockwurst (German sausage) for Christmas Holy Eve dinner.

  1. I love a yummy classic potato salad. I make a little different from yours. I think my boyfriend would like your version. As he is part German. He loves German food. I am not well versed in making most German foods. It is a learning in process for me.

  2. Hi Sandy! Thanks for your comment. I love the classic potato salad too and it´s the classic German version with mayonnaise. I have not eaten any other potato salad besides that one and my own versions. Have a lovely Sunday @rusty2rusty!

  3. I love potatoes ma’am Thelma and yes, peeling them is time-consuming but it is delicious and to be honest, I never tried making this dish.

  4. I notice you seem to use the pickle juice from gherkins in your salads quite a bit. My mother always did homemade salad dressing with mayonnaise, pickle juice and a tiny bit of sugar to sweeten it 🙂

    • Yes, I do that often @ruby3831 as I love the spices in the pickled gherkins juice. I have learned adding gherkins juice from my late German mother-in-law. Thanks for your comment. Happy weekend!
