potato salad recipe
This page offers a number of recipes for potato salad from all over the world. There are many variations of the potato salad recipe, where some consist of just potatoes with a sprinkling of herbs, whilst in others the potatoes are mixed together with several other ingredients such as celery, tomato, carrot, cauliflower etc. Here are some of our favourite recipes for you to try.
Potato salad is a great comfort food and goes down a treat as an accompaniment to burgers grilled on an open fire, grilled fish or roast chicken. In fact, you can eat potato salad with just about anything! It can be served any time of the year, as potatoes are in season all year round, but particularly works well for summer picnics and barbeques.

Usually potato salad is made with mayonnaise, which is high in fat and loaded with calories. However, some recipes do not use mayonnaise and employ healthier options such as fromage frais, olive oil and vinegar, yoghurt or soured cream.

Potato salad is easy to prepare. The main problem may be either over-cooking or under-cooking the potatoes. Over-cooked potatoes will make the salad mushy, as the potatoes will disintegrate and fall apart, whilst uncooked potatoes will leave the potatoes hard and inedible.

The rest of the preparation involves chopping up vegetables and herbs and preparing the dressing. The majority of our potato salad recipes can be served both warm and freshly made, or they should be refrigerated and allowed to cool before serving cold.

Take a look at our selection of potato salads and choose the ones that best suit your tastes and preferences. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, why not try some recipes that you would not usually opt for and broaden your repertoire of foods?
