Rustic potato salad suggestions
Our recipe goes all-in on the classic additions without the eggs. Leaving the skins on the potatoes can add some texture while the potato water from boiled potatoes will help thicken the mayonnaise sauce. Add some green peppers, garlic or even some scattered bacon bits for something extra special. You’re welcome to get as creative as possible with different ingredients and you can use sweet potatoes too.
Become the king or queen of the braai side this weekend. Get creative and try our rustic potato salad at the next family celebration feast.
