Potato and Beetroot Salad | | Kartoffelsalat mit roter Beete

This salad is extremely easy and simple but very delicious at the same time. I like it a lot, because I’m a beetroot fan and I’m always looking for ideas and new recipes to include it in.

Beetroot is widely used in the national cuisines of the Northern Europe, so it’s difficult to say where this salad comes from. Similar dishes are found in Poland, Estonia and Russia. There’s a French salad that also has a strong resemblance with it, but it’s made with mayonnaise.

 The biggest surprise for me was the fact that the potato beetroot salad is a traditional dish for Christmas in… Panama. In other words, we could easily say that the beetroot has been around the world and it’s not a typical ingredient only for Northern Europe.
