King of Potato Salads.
A recipe dating back to when Germany had a king. It has developed over generations, as ingredients were discovered and became available. (This was made with salad cream in the 70's), before mayonnaise became known. Each Otto generation added their own touch. It's still a good salad using salad cream and plain yoghurt. But that's another time.
It's a great dish on its own, or as an accompaniment to a cold buffet, or BBQ with those over cooked sausages, or under cooked chicken?
During our vanlife adventure in Sardinia we discovered Fregola, tiny pearls of pasta made by hand which originate from the Italian island. Fregola is a very versatile ingredient and can be used in soups, stews, salads and in this recipe made into a risotto-like pasta dish.
It is one of our favourite campervan kitchen staples. So much so we brought plenty back with us! However, you can find it online (amazon), in posh supermarkets and Italian delis. Although you could substitute it for Orzo or Arborio rice, you may need to add more stock/water.
This recipe can be easily adapted to suit your tastes, camper kitchen supplies and diets - it can be made totally vegetarian and vegan.
Recipe from Meg, from Flora & the Novice Explorers
Just an amazing summer cold dish, full of fresh/raw ingredients prepared in absolutely no time. The main ingredient is orzo, which is basically pasta in the shape of rice, which pairs perfectly with the vinaigrette & fresh veggies.
