Mother's German Potato Salad

Tomato Cream Salad

This is an old family recipé, one which, I suspects, came with my Great Grandparents from the Germany/Poland border region. It is still a favourite. Fantastic with home-grown tomatoes and cucumber.

Tomatoes, sliced (cut tomatoes in half first, if they are large) Cucumber, sliced (cut cucumber in half lengthwise if it is large) onion, sliced if red onion, or chopped fine otherwise
lemon juice good wine vinegar salt and black pepper

Mix the sliced vegetables, any juices from slicing, and the onion. Add a little lemon juice and/or good vinegar, and season well. Add sufficient cream to coat the vegetables well. Taste and adjust seasonings.

  1. Lovely idea to use cream. I love the combination of dairy and citrus. A must for me to try.
