My Mum’s Creamy Potato Salad Recipe

Creamy Potato Salad

My mum makes the best creamy potato salad, and has done ever since I was a kid. It’s the simplest recipe, and definitely doesn’t have bells and whistles, but everyone always asks her to make it, including me.

Firstly, I think it’s the mayonnaise that she uses. She only ever uses the Praise Traditional Creamy Mayonnaise. I’ve tried making it with whole egg mayonnaise, but the Praise one is the key. It available at supermarkets in Australia.

And of course you could add all the fancy stuff; bacon, herbs, and bits and bobs, but I do think it’s not really worth messing with something so simple and delicious. Right?
