This salad loves summer. It loves casual dining, barbecues and paper plates. Serve it with grilled sausages, steak or barbecued ribs. Chicken is also good. Everyone will be back for a second helping. You can easily double the recipe.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1kg new potatoes, scrubbed
1/2 teaspoon salt, for the cooking water
250 grams mayonnaise
6 large eggs, hard-boiled
3 celery stalks, finely sliced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus extra to serve

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons fresh chives, sliced

Method

  1. Put the potatoes and salt in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil over medium–high heat and boil until tender, about 12–15 minutes, testing with the point of a sharp knife. Drain the potatoes, reserving 125 ml of the cooking water, and return them to the saucepan over low heat for 1 minute to ensure any excess water has evaporated. Remove the potatoes from the saucepan and set aside to cool.
  2. To make the dressing, whisk together the mayonnaise and 2 tablespoons of the cooking water until creamy. Add more cooking water until the desired consistency is achieved.
  3. To make the salad, slice each potato into quarters and place in a large mixing bowl. Slice the eggs and add them to the mixing bowl along with the celery. Sprinkle with the sea salt and pepper. Pour in the dressing and toss to combine.
  4. To serve, transfer the salad to a serving bowl and sprinkle with pepper and chives.
  5. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. This salad is best eaten on the day it is made.
