Alternative Potato Salad – no mayo

If you’re done with over priced  eggy mayo ‘tato salad this one is a must.  Especially with summer coming up, the fresh taste of this potato salad is ideal for a braai on a hot summer’s day.

Before we go any further, this recipe is not mine, although I made it my own with a few things, I first found it on Thug’s Kitchen (love thug’s no nonsense approach to healthy food!).

Back to the potato salad, here’s what you need for a salad for about  4 people – 

  • 2-3 big potatoes skin on chopped into bite size pieces
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 2 tspn dried dill 
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 a tspn whole grain mustard
  • 1/2 a tspn Dijon mustard (if you don’t have both mustards 1 teaspoon of the one you have will be fine)
  • 3 tbsp white wine or white grape vinegar 
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 red onion chopped
  • Handful of fresh parsley chopped
  • Handful of chives chopped 
  • 2 carrots peeled and grated

Here’s what to do –

  • Boil the potatoes in water with a pinch of salt until just soft (don’t overboil so they disintegrate)
  • While the potatoes are boiling, in a medium sized serving bowl, add your onion and grated carrots.
  • Mix all the rest of the ingredients in a small jug or mug
  • Once the potatoes are soft, drain.
  • Immediately while still hot add potatoes to your serving bowl
  • Mix the salad dressing in and mix it up, careful not to mush the potatoes 

Leave in the fridge for a while so all the flavours can mix. 

Happy cooking!
