Potato salad, which we all know well in Slovenia, does not contain cucumbers or green beans. Not to mention the eggs. But thus composed or enriched, it is even more hearty and delicious and represents its own little meal.

To make preparation easier, here are some guidelines for better preparation of today’s potato salad:

Pour the filling over the potatoes while the potatoes are still warm, as this will absorb the flavors better, then be sure to cool the salad.

Cook the eggs until tender, about 5 minutes, to make them easier to peel, and cook them in boiling water with a teaspoon of vinegar.

You can also replace the dill with parsley or omit the spices altogether.

Potato salad is also great with just green beans or just cucumber.

You can also prepare the filling with plain mustard.

You can use lemon instead of lime.

And the most important fact for all of you who bring your lunch to work: the salad is wonderful to keep overnight, so you can prepare it in advance. The next day, to refresh the salad, add a tablespoon of water if necessary and stir everything again.
