Recipe by Aaron Brunet
500g waxy potatoes, boiled and peeled
1 red onion, peeled and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/2 cup hot water
5 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/2 cup parsley, finely chopped
1/2 – 3/4 cup Living Goodness Sassy or Naked Kraut
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons capers
2 tablespoons quality olive oil
• Boil potatoes until cooked but still firm. An easy way to peel recently boiled potatoes is to put them in a bowl of cold water so the skin shrinks and they are cool enough to handle. Use a small knife and pull the skin gently so it comes away cleanly, dipping the knife into the cold water regularly to clean off the starch.
• Place the red onion in a bowl and add salt, vinegar and hot water, stirring to mix. Leave for 5 minutes then drain the liquid off.
• Slice potatoes thinly (approx 5mm) and add to a big bowl with the remaining ingredients. Toss well, then gently fold in red onions, they’ll be a lovely bright pink after they’ve soaked.
