German Potato Salad Recipe

German Potato salad is a great side dish to have with this week's special offer on Smoked Gammon. Alternatively, you can take leftover gammon cut into small pieces and mix directly into the salad. Here is a simple recipe from Michelin starred chef Richard Corrigan.


2 shallots, finely chopped
4 tbsp corn oil
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
freshly ground black pepper
4 large potatoes, cooked and cooled
1 tsp mustard seeds
50g gherkins, chopped
½ bunch fresh dill, chopped



  1. Prepare a dressing for the potatoes. Combine the shallots, oil, vinegar and mustard. Season well, then taste, adjusting the quantity of oil and vinegar, if necessary. 
  2. Lightly crush the potatoes and fold through the dressing, mustard seeds, gherkin and fresh dill.
  3. Serve.
