In the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Bramborový Salát (potato salad) is a traditional Christmas meal. It comes as a side dish to a fried fish (most commonly carp), schnitzel or certain type of white sausage which is served for dinner on Christmas Eve. Potato salad is prepared in different varieties and each family preserves their own recipe. It most commonly contains potatoes, mayonnaise, eggs and onions. Some versions contain also carrots, green peas, pickled cucumbers, celery, mustard, salami and other ingredients. The typical Czech potato salad is a mixture of several ingredients, eaten cold. A mixture consisting primarily of potatoes, but also cucumbers, eggs, carrots, mayonnaise, soft salami, etc.
Different versions of potato salad are served at different temperatures. Potato salads prepared in the southern parts of Germany are often warm or even hot, while some are served at room temperature. In the U.S. and northern Germany are commonly served chilled and require refrigeration beforehand, same as in the Czech Republic. It is also a popular menu choice for cooks preparing food for a large number of people, mainly because it can be easily made in large quantities, it can be prepared in advance and refrigerated until needed and because it requires inexpensive ingredients.
