Potato Salad recipe

This recipe for potato salad is really, really simple. Serve this with cold cuts of meat and a green salad in the summer.


  • 500g new potatoes
  • 1 banana shallot
  • Handful fresh parsley
  • 4 tbsp. salad cream
  • 2 tbsp. malt vinegar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp. grainy mustard

Method of Preparation:

  1. Cut the potatoes into small chunks and place them into a pan of cold water. Bring them to the boil and then cook for 15-20 minutes or until just fork tender.

  2. Once cooked, drain them and shake them a bit to rough up the edges.

  3. Finely dice the shallot and finely chop the parsley.

  4. Mix together the salad cream, vinegar, salt and pepper and mustard. Mix the onion, potato, parsley and dressing together, whilst the potatoes are still warm, and then leave the salad to cool down before serving it.

You could add any number of vegetables to this salad finely chopped red peppers are nice, as are spring onions in place of the shallot. This recipe serves four people as a side dish.
