8 medium size potatoes
1 small onion
5 tbsp oil
3 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tbsp mustard
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp curry powder
Cook and peel the potatoes and set them aside to cool completely. When they’re cooled, cut them into 1/4 inch slices. Slice the cucumbers super thin. The thinner the better. Chop the onion into very small pieces.
In a salad bowl combine 3 tbsp red wine vinegar, 5 tbsp oil of your choice, 2 tbsp Dijon mustard, a quarter teaspoon nutmeg, a quarter teaspoon curry, salt and pepper to taste. Mix until well combined, then add onions, stir well, and finally add potatoes and cucumbers. Combine well.
Taste to see if you need to add anymore spices or vinegar. The potatoes really soak up the moisture, so it’s possible you’ll have to add a little.
This potato salad is a family favorite, and has been in my family since I was a kid.
