Simple Potato Salad
I like to serve this basic potato salad when it is really pretty cold but its important to mix in the mayonnaise and the cream whilst the potatoes are still warm.
You will need:
4 medium sized potato
2 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tbsp double cream
2 spring onions chopped fine
Small handful chopped fresh parsley
A few sprigs of fresh chives chopped
5 cornichons chopped fine
¼ tsp hot pimento
1 level tsp paprika
Salt and black pepper
And then you need to:
Peel and chop the potatoes into small chunks. I like mine really quite small but cut them how you want.
Place in cold salted water and bring to the boil, cook until quite tender.
In a large bowl combine all other ingredients
When the potatoes are cooked drain in a colander and throw them into the bowl with the creamy mixture. Give a good but gentle stir and mix well.
