Simple Potato Salad

Who doesn’t love potatoes? So versatile and scrummy and just a great starchy ingredient which can be used with almost any meal. If you remember, back in May, I decided it would be a great idea to get everyone down to Kent for a family feast – and photograph everything at the same time (tips to bloggers out there…this is far from ideal as you will have many hungry guests waiting whilst you get that angle perfect on your beautifully created dishes).

When putting together this family feast, my main concern was to ensure there were enough gluten-free options so my cousin could eat everything (especially as he so kindly gave up his time to help with photographing the food). Plus, it was Jersey Royal season, and although I was in Kent, I thought – why not get those on the table too!

This is a simple potato salad which can be whipped up in an instant, and if you prefer to keep it plain, you can remove the mayo and replace with fresh lemon juice or even a splash of vinegar. It also tastes great the next and if preferably served at room temperature and of course, you can sub the Jersey Royals for any small salad potato and add this to your meals throughout the year!
