Here is a really yummy variation on the basic potato salad.  It adds egg, pickles, and smoked salmon for a richer flavour.


  • New Potatoes 400g/ 14 oz
  • Spring Onions 2
  • Smoked Salmon (Lox) 100g
  • Dill Pickles/Gherkins 2
  • Eggs 2 hard boiled
  • Mayonnaise 2 Tbs
  • Dijon Mustard 1 tsp rounded
  • Salt
  • Water to cover


Bring enough water to cover the potatoes to the boil in a medium pan.  Lightly salt and add the potatoes. Book for about 8 minutes, drain and allow to cool. When the potatoes are sufficiently cooled (room temp or lower). Halve each potato into a large bowl.  Dice the onions and gherkins and add to the bowl.  Shell and dice the eggs and add to the bowl. Next cut the salmon into thin strips and add. Then stir in the mayo and mustard.  Cover and refrigerate for about an hour.

Potatoes can be peeled or skin on, and if in a hurry canned new potatoes can be used (500 -530 g tin drained).
