Delicious Classic Potato Salad

I know potatoes are almost ‘old fashioned’ but cold meats and a delicious classic potato salad can’t be beaten, especially over the festive season with leftovers or with BBQ meat.

This recipe is lighter with the addition of thick good quality Greek yoghurt to balance the mayo. Those who know me, know I am not partial to eggs, but in this recipe the egg can’t be tasted and will be missed if omitted.

I made this potato salad for a friends Oktoberfest party, so the amount feeds a crowd, but the recipe can easily be quartered or halved.

If you are hosting vegan friends make an olive oil dressing instead of the mayo dressing adding all the other ingredients, except eggs, it’s delicious.
