Potato Salad with Cottage Cheese Dressing

    1 hour 25 minutes

    A nice crunchy yet creamy potato salad with heaps of fresh taste from the celery, capsicum and radish. You can also garnish by slicing one of the boiled eggs and arranging the slices on top, then sprinkling with the olives.

    Serves: 10 

    • 3 eggs
    • 4 large potatoes
    • 1 cup diced celery
    • 1/2 cup sliced radishes
    • 1/2 cup diced green capsicum
    • 1/2 cup diced spring onion
    • 1 cup (225g) cottage cheese
    • 3/4 cup (190ml) mayonnaise

    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 tablespoon sliced black olives
    • paprika, to garnish

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Extra time:20min cooling  ›  Ready in:1hour25min 

    1. Place the eggs into a saucepan in a single layer and fill with water to cover the eggs by about 2cm. Cover the saucepan and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, remove from the heat and let the eggs stand in the hot water for 15 minutes. Pour out the hot water, then cool the eggs under cold running water in the sink. Peel when cold.
    2. Place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Rinse the potatoes in cold water, and allow to cool. Slice the cooled potatoes into a large salad bowl.
    3. Chop the hard-boiled eggs into the bowl with the potatoes, and mix in the celery, radishes, green capsicum, spring onion and olives. Stir together the cottage cheese and mayonnaise in a bowl, and pour over the potato mixture. Toss lightly to combine, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with a sprinkle of paprika.

    Absolutely fabulous..The only changes that I made was that I used 1/2 yellow onion (only because I didn't have green onions), and I mixed an entire can of blcak olives into the salad. Deliciously simple. My brother said it was "clean" Potato salad.  -  31 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was really good, my sister raved about it and forced me to leave my leftover with her. Asked her what she thought and she said it was "clean" which is interesting that she mimicked another reader here. We liked the freshness of it, each ingredient carried it's own flavor. I added almost a full can of black olives. Will make again.  -  26 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
