Potato Salad


With Summer well on it's way (for us in the Southern Hemisphere that is) this is the perfect dish to take to Christmas dinners and barbeque's.  It is super easy to make (and can be either partially or fully made the day before it's needed), and always loved.

Quite a few people have raved about my potato salad, and to be honest, it's so simple and easy that I think it's either down to the brand of dressing I use, or the extra ingredients I add. 

So here is the super basic recipe for my potato salad!!

p.s. I have reorganized my recipes page so that it is easier to find things!

Ingredients 
Approximately 6-8 meduim sized potatoes, boiled and cut into bite sized chunks 
4-6 boiled eggs, cut into quarters
1 jar potato salad dressing (I use ETA potato salad dressing) 
3-4 spring onions, finely sliced 
Chopped gherkins (I buy a jar of sliced gherkins and add about 8 slices cause they are so yum!) 
Chopped mint
Chopped parsley

Add all of the above ingredients into a large bowl and carefully stir until the dressing has been evenly mixed. You can get creative and add other ingredients like cooked corn, cooked bacon pieces, sliced red onion etc.



Cover and store in the refrigerator until time to serve.

  7. Ummmm Potato Salad - mine has spring onion and crispy bacon, loads of pepper and BEST Mayonaise (I wasn't paid to write that, honest). Also good tip is to pour on the dressing/bits over warm potatos, so as they cool they soak up all that yum-o flavour. Hurrah for summer!

  9. My mum's secret ingredient was to add some of the pickle juice, as well as the pickles/gherkins. And I love the deli potato salad you get at the supermarket! They always have cubes of carrot in them, but I don't think I've ever successfully included carrots in a potato salad myself...

  12. I too make "famous" potato salad. Mine is a little more complex with lots of ingredients, but I suppose that is what makes it famous.

    - Regular potatoes in BIG CHUNKS
    - Sweet potato in BIG CHUNKS
    - red onion & celery sauteed in butter
    - lots of bacon in large chunks
    - green onion
    - lots of eggs in you guessed it, large chunks

    Then there is the dressing, and this is the BEST part. Even quantities of:
    - sour cream
    - miracle whip
    - whole egg mayonnaise

    It's chunky, creamy, tangy, sweet, salty and soft all at the same time.
