Czech potato salad / Cesky bramborovy salat

yahoo potato salad imageI love anything with potatoes (makes sense since it is genetically wired into my Czech genes): potato pancakes (Bramboraky), potato soup (Bramboracka), mashed potatoes (alone!), and most of all the Potato Salad! There are so many variations on this dish, and as my friend educated me the other day there is the “poor” version (potatoes, canned root of celery and mayo) and the “salad-for-the-rich” version, meaning that it includes “fancy” ingredients such as meat and eggs :) I chose to do the rich version just because it tends to be more interesting and also a little more tasty:



  • 5 big potatoes
  • 1 big red onion
  • 3 large sweet pickles
  • 2 oz peas
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce (OK, that’s not exactly the Czech ingredient here but it’s well worth it)
  • 2 Tbs pickle juice (or vinegar)
  • 3 Tbs mayonnaise
  • finely chopped fresh parsley
  • salt, pepper
  • Optional: about 4 oz of cut up ham


  1. Boil Potatoes in the skin and let them cool down
  2. Optional: peel them
  3. Dice the potatoes, ham and the hard boiled eggs
  4. Finely chop the onion, pickles and parsley
  5. Gently mix all of the ingredients together, gradually adding the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce
  6. Add the mayonnaise in and stir lightly

PS: it tastes the best when you have it the next day! A true leftover food ;)
