Notes... I always get comments when i bring this to a bbq, I'm a little embarrassed when asked for the recipe.... because its so simple !

  • Never tried making my own potato salad, and I’ve found supermarket ones I’ve tried to be too bitter or just not tasty. This looks yummy, would love to try it.

    Your recipe looks very tasty, I don’t think I have ever added a splash of vinegar to mine so maybe that is the key ingredient for a great salad? Thank you for sharing your recipe, looking forward to making it :)

    • The gherkin gives it a little zing too.
