Such and easy recipe but always a summer winner


Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 4 med. to lge. Potatoes, peeled and chopped

  • 4 slices ham, chopped
  • 4 lge gherkins,chopped

Method

  1. Place potatoes in to a saucepan with enough salted water to cover. Add the vinegar (this will help to stop potatoes falling apart ) Boil until tender, drain and cool

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.

  • oh I love a good potato salad, one with perfect cooked potatoes and a great creamy dressing will get me every time.

    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.
