A Mediterranean diet is a healthy way of life and eating. Try omitting mayo-based sauces by using herbs, a splash of lemon juice or vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil to dress and flavour vegetables and salads. Itís all about cooking with fresh locally grown ingredients.

My grandmotherís Potato Salad is definitely a family favourite that has been passed down between generations and best of all is simple and requires little preparation for such a delicious dish. We often serve it during the summer months and at barbecues.
