Grandma's Easy Potato And Salmon Salad
A delicious salad recipe for the whole family
This salad can just as easily be served on it's own or as an accompaniment to other food. Potatoes are always a filling and economical ingredient and the salmon (which as it is smoked doesn't need cooking), adds a touch of class. Cucumber is added to lighten it up and the sesame seeds give it even more of a crunch, to contrast with the softness of the other ingredients. Dried herbs can be used to replace the fresh ones if necessary. There are many recipes for potatoes, but this one is no ordinary fish salad. It is comfortingly simple and has the added bonus of the smokiness of the salmon permeating the soft centres of the potatoes and yet allowing them to retain their crispiness. To cook potato and serve it with salmon in this way will be sure to get everyone's mouths watering.
I first found this recipe when we were living in Germany, so this is where it most likely originates and I have been making it for my family ever since. With this good salad recipe, Grandma's kitchen will be filled with the warm, inviting aroma of lovingly prepared food that will be heartily appreciated by the whole family and be sure to have them asking for seconds, if they have room!
