Remember, you are only using 2 tbsp of this mayonnaise, keep the rest refrigerated in a sealed jar for later use. Spring garlic is the new garlic – use leaves too. The best is to paste it in a mortar with the pestle to get all these flavors in this beautiful and healthy potato salad. Olives should be pitted otherwise you will need to remember they’re not so you don’t damage your teeth

How To Make healthy potato salad

  • 1
    Start by washing thoroughly and then boil the potatoes with 1 tsp salt. I choose smaller sized non-floury potatoes for my salads in general and I always leave the skin on. Boil according to their size and type. Approximately 10-15 min. You will know when they ready by doing the fork test. Pierce them with a fork or a toothpick if they are done the fork spikes will go through the potato with ease. I generally wash the eggs, boil them together with the potatoes and remove these with a slotted spoon after 8 min placing them into a bowl containing ice cubed and water.

    When the potatoes are ready, drain the water and set aside to cool. Decide if you want to leave or remove the skin. If you don't want the skin, peel them as soon as they are cool enough to be handled. Peel the hard-boiled eggs.

    While the potatoes are cooling, take a larger bowl and mix together the dressing ingredients, the vinegar, crushed or chopped spring garlic, salt, freshly ground black pepper. Mix well and set aside.

    Add the other ingredients like the olives, spring onion, chopped pickled cucumbers, chopped parsley and dill, chopped eggs and cubed potatoes.

    Give it all a good old mix and season more if you would like. Oh, yes, for me a pinch of dry red chili or cayenne pepper, please! Serve and enjoy!
