German Potato Salad with Goat Cheese and Chives Special Diets | 7 June 2017 Share article facebook twitter google pinterest Whether you serve it at your backyard barbecue or bring it to a poolside party, you should always have a good potato salad recipe up your sleeve. The goat cheese and chives add a hint of sophistication in this delicious, dressed up German potato salad from The Low-FODMAP Cookbook. Doused in a Dijon vinaigrette and served warm, this potato salad is even more comforting than the traditional picnic-table version that’s loaded with mayo. (Then again, maybe that’s just my German heritage talking!) Minced chives give it a fresh, oniony flavor, and the goat cheese lends it a tangy creaminess. It’s an ideal dish for sharing at summertime barbecues. YIELD: 4 SERVINGS 1½ pounds (680 G) red potatoes, cut into ¾-inch (2 CM) cubes 1¼ teaspoons kosher salt, divided 4 slices of bacon, cut into ½-inch (1.3 CM) strips ¼ cup (60 ML) rice wine vinegar 1 tablespoon (15 G) dijon mustard ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper ½ cup (75 G) crumbled goat cheese 2 tablespoons (6 G) minced fresh chives Place the potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with about an inch (2.5 cm) of water. Add 1 teaspoon of the kosher salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium. Simmer the potatoes, uncovered, for about 8 minutes (the potatoes will still be a little underdone). While the potatoes are cooking, fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crispy. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel and drain the bacon grease from the pan (but don’t wipe it clean). Return the bacon to the skillet and add the rice wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, the remaining ¼ teaspoon kosher salt, and black pepper to the skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Stir in the potatoes and cook until the liquid is mostly absorbed, about 5 minutes. Gently toss in the goat cheese and minced fresh chives. Serve warm.
