Classic Potato Salad


Hi I’m Amber! Okay, so I’m 13 years old and I just love food! Who doesn’t?  At school today, my teacher asked each of us to contribute a homemade dish for a class picnic tomorrow.What better way to celebrate a beautiful, sunny English day,  than with a classic homemade potato salad shared among friends!

Potato Salad Recipe

This delicious salad can be made the day before -as I did- thrown in the fridge and pulled out, a few hours before serving.

What you need 

  • 8oo g of new potatoes
  • 3 tbsp of mayo
  • 3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of white wine vinegar
  • a small handful of fresh chives
  • salt and pepper to taste

What to do

First peel your potatoes, it can be boring so I crank up the radio and listen to my favourite tunes!

Then, you cut them into bite-size chunks, before putting them in. Add plenty of boiling water and a pinch of salt and boil for 20 mins. Drain and allow to cool. Then, add the mayo and gently mix together. Try and keep from mushing the potatoes up too much if you can! Then mix in the oil and vinegar, and add salt and pepper to taste.  Don’t forget the chives, chop them finely and sprinkle over your potato salad!

Enjoy:-) Amber x
