Easy Potato salad – No Nonsense

Easy Potato Salad No Nonsense – BBQ Time! 

Possibly the nicest potato salad ever – big claim?

A superb  Easy Potato salad Recipe – No Nonsense!   It really is so good and so simple 

It’s not like that slimy shop bought stuff, why would you by that?!  

I even find that most of the time the potato isn’t even soft, possibly not cooked enough? I simply don’t like it and even the premium supermarket ones are still odd?? 

Just make your own, however in cost and larger in taste 🙂 

 

Keeping it Healthy – Potato Salad

With this lovely recipe you can also use low fat mayo to keep it low and a little healthier.

Or just go for it and use the full-fat version! To be honest I can’t tell the difference 

I love this easy no nonsense potato salad, like really love it – but I am a carb monster! 

With the crispy bacon on top it’s almost a tasty meal in itself!

I can eat shed loads – really! 

Easy No Nonsense Potato Salad

 

Jersey Royal Potatoes, perfect for Potato Salad

I combine beautiful beautiful Jersey Royal New Potatoes (any will do though) with spring onions, celery (church) and crispy smoked bacon.

All this  combined with a lovely Mayo & Creme Fraiche dressing.  

 

Look at the ingredients so simple

Fresh and light – yum yum, a dash of lemon juice adds that final touch.

 

BBQ planning 

So at the BBQ get ahead and make a massive bowl of this, because then there’s no need for hot new potatoes, genius!

It’s a great dish to feed the masses!

If you make this the main potato dish at your party / BBQ you will also manage to get out of the kitchen and have loads of time enjoy the BBQ with friends and family

Try it – your family and friends will love it.

Makes a perfect accompaniment to ALL that BBQ food or a summer garden party!

 

Can I make my Potato Salad and store it in the fridge? 

Yes yes you can!! I normally make mine the day before, so all the hassle is out the way, but covered it will keep perfectly in the fridge for 3 days

  1. Sounds great for lunch box on bowl of lettuce will give it a go ???

  2. Angela / Only Crumbs Remain

    This sounds delicious Claire, though living in a vegetarian household I’d need to make it without the bacon…I imagine it would be just as delicious. #FoodYearLinkUp

  3. Charlotte Oates

    This sounds delicious, I love bacon in a potato salad, it really adds a lot of flavour. I have to admit that I don’t mind shop bought coleslaw but I completely agree about the potato salad – homemade so so much nicer!

  4. 2nd time making this today. I leave out the celery and chives (allergy) but add a dash of garlic powder. I got the last spoonful at the BBQ. It is soooo good and so easy to make ??
