"Quer durch die Küche" Potato Salad

“Quer durch die Küche” – Pesto Potato Salad

This one goes out to my Mother. She has a talent to cook up amazing dishes, only using what she has lying around. She calls this “Quer durch die Küche” (straight through the kitchen). I had some small potatoes, so I made a potato salad with a parsley-hazelnut pesto, avocado and parma ham.


  • Small potatoes
  • parsley
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Hazelnuts
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Chili
  • Garlic
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Avocado
  • Parma ham
  • Radishes

Cook the potatoes in salted water for about 10-15 min.
Toast the hazelnuts in another pan.
Combine parsley, chili, garlic, hazelnuts and parmesan in a pestle & mortar and pound… Add olive oil until you have a fine paste. Season with salt, pepper and lemon juice
Drain the potatoes and combine with the pesto. Chop the radishes, cut the parma ham and avocado into strips and add everything to the dish.
