This moreish potato salad is made with a homemade garlic mayo and topped with pinenuts. My absolute go-to for summer barbecues!
There are potato salads, and then there is THIS potato salad. Once you've tried this version, you'll never want to eat store-bought again. The key to this recipe is the herb-filled garlic mayo. Perfect for making in summer when fresh herbs are plentiful.
You can use any potatoes you have to hand for this recipe. I love the Perla new potatoes for three reasons. 1) They're pretty uniform in size which means they cook evenly, 2) they don't have any dirt to clean! and 3) they taste fresh and creamy.
HOW TO MAKE THIS POTATO SALAD:
First of all, get those potatoes boiling! I prefer to boil them whole so that they don't take on too much water and remain nice and creamy. Once the potatoes are just cooked, drain and set aside to cool for later.
Make the garlic mayo by placing the egg, oil, salt, lemon juice, mustard, crushed garlic and mixed herbs in a tall container. Blend with a stick blender until creamy.
Once the potatoes have cooled, chop them into bite-size pieces and arrange in a dish or bowl for serving. Pour the garlic mayo on top and mix through with the sour cream. Finally, sprinkle the whole dish with chopped chives and toasted pinenuts. Cover and refrigerate until required.
