Potato Salad

Overview
This is a Latvian-style potato salad. Don’t be put off by the word “salad” – there’s not a lot that’s healthy in this one! Many Latvian potato salads also include chopped pickles and pickled herring, but I prefer to leave these out.

Time
Comes together quickly once the ingredients are ready, but tastes better once it’s sat in the fridge overnight.

Ingredients: Salad
1kg baby potatoes (I use the 500g microwavable bags), cooked whole, then cut into halves or quarters depending on the size
250g bacon, diced
2 small-medium onions
Cracked pepper
20g butter
4 hard boiled eggs, each cut into 12
2 spring onions, chopped

Ingredients: Dressing
1 cup mayonnaise
½ cup tangy coleslaw dressing
¼ cup sweetened condensed milk
1 TB Dijon mustard
1 ½ TB apple cider vinegar
dill (more than you think you’ll need)

Method
1 – Fry the bacon and onion in a pan with the melted butter. Season with cracked pepper.

2 – Combine all dressing ingredients in a jug.

3 – Place all salad ingredients into a large bowl.

4 – Pour dressing over salad ingredients and mix well. Cover with Glad Wrap and refrigerate overnight.
