Quick & Easy Potato Salad



We're having a BBQ this afternoon, so I've spent much of this morning in the kitchen making kebabs, salads, and cookies.

This super-quick potato salad is a perfect party side dish for summer eating - tasty, but almost instant (once you've cooked the potatoes and allowed them to cool). You can use vegan mayo if you're catering for a variety of diets.

Potato Salad

1200g cold, cooked potatoes (boiled or steamed)
250ml mayonnaise
12 spring onions
1 medium red onion
Salt & black pepper to taste

Chop the potatoes into pieces, about 1-inch cubes. Chop the onions and spring onions finely, and combine all ingredients in a large salad bowl. Chill until needed.

i make something similar - and you know what is awesome? those bacony bits you can get - they're soya so suitable for veggies, and it gives an extra flavour/texture too.

I used to hate cold potatoes when I was younger - I liked "hot" foods hot, and "cold" foods cold. Now, I love potato salad - home-made, of course:) x

Sounds great and potato salad is a must for a bbq. I have two versions I make (depending on how I feel) one similar to yours and one with pancetta cubes, fresh chives, olive oil and some coarse sea salt...

I hope you're well and can take a bit of a break in August? Have a good week xo

I made this for Lucy's party today and it went down really well. I did think 'gosh that's a lot of potatoes' but it all went so clearly it wasn't too much :)
