Potato salad is my favourite evening meal on summer days. As the British weather deigned to be a little bit kind, and now that Jersey Royals are in season, out came my salad bowl too. This recipe is from my lovely mom-in-law, who is also a brilliant Scrabble mediator. Pity she lives all the way in Canada.
Its a really easy salad, if you're using bought mayo, which imo, is fine when you're trying to save time. If you've made your own mayo, so much the better. I love the bite that the horseradish/ English mustard gives to the salad, and the lemon juice just joins up all the dots. The chives are from my patio, for some reason they refuse to die out :-)
This salad is great with only eggs as well. I like a combination of both taters and eggs.
500g Jersey Royals, scrubbed, cut into bite sized pieces if big, otherwise leave them whole
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
About 150ml mayonnaise
About a teaspoon, or more if you like (I like!) of horseradish or hot English mustard
1 tbsp or to taste, lemon juice
Salt and pepper to season
Snmall bunch fresh chives or substitute spring onions, finely chopped
Boil the potatoes until tender.
In a bowl, gently mix together the potatoes, eggs, mayonnaise, horseradish or mustard.
Season to taste. Add the lemon juice and adjust the seasoning.
Snip the chives over the salad and fold in.
Serve with a bbq, or as part of a summer meal.
