Potato salad with fresh herbs

    50 minutes

    Simple recipe for a great potato salad for a picnic or barbecue. Make sure the potatoes are not cooked too soft. I find this potato salad is better at room temperature but you can make it beforehand and store it in the fridge.

    This was really interesting everyone thought it was fabulous  -  01 Dec 2008


    This is a recipe that I had passed down from my mum, As I have in my notes I do not use sour cream, I use Heinz Lite Salad dressing this is a little bit sweeter and lower in fat. The mint adds a freshness on hot summers day this is a great treat for BBQ's  -  05 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I cant wait to try this - Im planning a huge Memorial Day Picnic/Barbecue so this is going to be on trial this weekend first It soulnds perfect although I have reservations about the mint... but be that as it may, Im going to give it a shot and will let you know the results on Monday. UPDATE: WONDERFUL! LOVED it - I had to make one change because the family did not care for the idea of mint w/pototoes (no sense of adventure! ) anyways, I left out the mint. PERFECT, thank you  -  19 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
