roastbeef and potato salad recipe

Roastbeef and potato salad recipe, very typical Swedish summer food.

Serves four:

16 large Potatoes
5 dl (2 Cups) of Sour cream or light Creme fraiche
1,25 dl (0,5 Cups) of Mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 red Onion
about 12 thin slices of grilled Roastbeef

Salt & Pepper

1. Dice the potatoes into small cubes, boil them until soft. Peel and finely chop the onion.

2. While the potatoes still are hot, blend with the sour cream or the creme fraiche, mayonnaise, onion and mustard.

3. Season with salt and pepper and chill in refrigerator until its cold, then serve with roastbeef or other cold cuts, and perhaps a nice bread.
The potato salad could also be a part of a traditional smorgasbord.
