#3 Some Hungarian Appetizers – Potato salad with onion & vinegar – Hagymás-ecetes krumplisaláta

Potato salad with onion and vinegar – Hagymás-ecetes krumpli saláta



Potato salad with vinegar & onions goes well with meat, fish, by scrambled eggs for breakfast.

Served for 2-4 persons, preparing time: 40 mins + cooling time

Recipe: Ingredients: 1 kg of smaller-grained potatoes, 3 heads of medium size red onion, 7 tps of 20% vinegar to taste, 6 tsp sugar to taste, 2 liters of cold water, a pinch of salt, a pinch of ground pepper.

Cooking: There can be choosed serving cold or warm. Boil the potatoes in their peel and then peel off the peel as soon as it has cooled. May cook the night before … but you can also cook them on the day of consumption … cook in lightly salted water, whole. Potatoes can also be cut into cubes are easy to slice (be careful they don’t fall apart) or may also be cut into cubes. Clean the red onion and sliced it thinly add a sprinkle of salt.

If cooked a day before then peel them and the same procedure as above. Prepare the juice of the potato salad. To the cold water can be added to the vinegar and the sugar and salt to taste. Mix well so that all the ingredients dissolve in the water. Peel the red onion, cut it in half, and then slice it into very thin slices so that it is not unpleasant to crack the thick onion in the pickles. Place the onion on the potatoes, sprinkle a breath of ground pepper on it, and then twist it very carefully so that the potato slices don’t fall apart. Add as much red onion as for the taste that suits. Some like it with alot a red onion, some don’t cause of its strong spice taste.

(Anyway … a little lexicon won’t be spicey … 1. onions are an excellent and inexpensive source of vitamins C, B6, B9, B1 and B2, and also contain minerals such as calcium and iron. … 2. A flavonoid called quercetin in onions is a powerful antioxidant that has been proven to prevent cancer. … 3. Onions also contain chromium and allyl propyl disulfide, which help control blood sugar levels.)

May place the prepaired  potatoe salad in the fridge to have it cooled down. Place a lid to cover so no onion odor won’t fill the air inside. Also may place it to cold place to mix the flavors! If time allows let it stand for half-a-day, so that the flavors permeate the potato slices inside as well.

Potato salad with vinegar & onion goes by itself,  but also garnish for lunchy or supper.

Naturally it can even be served warm and cold, especially as a side dish, with slice carp, or fried perch or grilled white fish and/or with fried chicken breast, along with meatballs as well and it’s very delicious. As a tradition theHungarians serve it along with fish during Xmas.

Once have tasted it … gonna love it!

Bon apetit! – Jó Étvágyat!
