Best Ever Potato Salad

Best Ever Potato Salad

Posted 2017-04-24 by finyfollow

There are potato salads and then there are POTATO SALADS!

I don't know what nationality this recipe is but I got it from my daughter in law, and it is far nicer than all others I have made, including my mother's German recipe.

It is a little more complicated, as it has more ingredients, however it is well worth that extra effort.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients
About 4 very large potatoes
2 rashers short cut bacon, chopped
1 - 2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 spring onion, sliced
2 tbsp egg mayonnaise
1 - 2 tbsp [link http://recipeyum.com.au/pancetta-and-pecorino-cakes-with-home-made-sundried-tomato-pesto/ pesto] or you could use a bought one
2 tsp Dijon mustard
Parsley, chopped
1 tsp capers
1 [link http://reviewclue.com.au/globus-dill-cucumbers/ pickled cucumber] or similar, sliced

Method
  • Cook the whole potatoes for about 15 minutes, depending on their size. Do not overcook or they will be soggy when sliced.

  • While they are cooking, cook the bacon and I did this in the microwave for about 3 minutes.

  • Drain water, and slice the potatoes to your liking.

  • While still hot, add the mayonnaise.

  • Add all the other ingredients carefully, mixing slightly after each addition.


  • Add some pepper, and serve.

  • This potato salad is slightly better the next day when all the flavours have soaked through, so you can make it ahead of time.

  • I served it with my spinach and feta stuffed chicken rolls, however I had enough left over to have it also for lunch for a few days.
