Advent & Christmas, Lunch

Potato Salad

The potato salad that I make is always popular but so easy to make.  It is a recipe that my mother taught me & in fact she’ll be making the potato salad for Christmas Day.  You can also make this recipe with sweet potato as well.  On Christmas day I’ll be making a different sweet potato salad (I just sub almond/coconut milk with a splash of vinegar for the buttermilk to make it dairy free) & coleslaw (I use whole egg mayonnaise instead of coleslaw dressing).Potato Salad

Here’s my potato salad recipe:

Potato Salad

  • Servings: 6 people
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 3 large brushed potatoes
  • 2 rashers of bacon
  • 4 shallots
  • 2 heaped tbsp whole egg mayonnaise (or to taste)


  1. Wash & peel the potatoes.  Cut the potatoes into cubes.
  2. Place in a large saucepan & cover with warm water.
  3. Bring to the boil, once boiling turn it down low to simmer for about 10 mins or until potatoes are soft when tested with a fork.
  4. Meanwhile chop the back into small pieces & cook either in a frypan or in the microwave.  Slice the shallots.
  5. Drain the potatoes once they are cooked & place into a serving dish or bowl.
  6. Add the cooked bacon, sliced shallots & mayonnaise.  Stir to combine.  Refrigerate to cool before serving.

Note:  You can easily change the quantities to feed more or less people.  I usually do about 1 large potato for each 2 people it will be serving but often have leftovers, which my family enjoys.
