Summer time is barbecue time. But in addition to meat, sausages or grilled vegetables, you also need some tasty side dishes that make the dinner perfect. In addition to the classic baguette and pasta salad, one dish should not be missing from the table: potato salad. But a slightly lighter version that is not too heavy on the stomach is welcome on hot days. In addition to potatoes, the following recipe offers many fresh ingredients such as cucumber, apple and yogurt. And best of all: It’s a so-called Recipe for 7 cups. This means, as you can imagine, the ingredients are simply weighed into cups – so you need seven ingredients (not counting spices and herbs). Firstly, this method offers the advantage that you don’t need to measure anything with a scale and secondly, you always have the perfect ratio of all the ingredients and you can double, triple, etc. the quantity as you wish. If you use a small coffee cup or cup big, it’s up to you – you just have to use the same cup for all the ingredients.
