This potato-egg salad is a perfect side dish for the hot summer days or for a barbecue outside. You don't like the combination with eggs? Then you might consider to try the apple-potato salad that I made on an earlier occasion. Or you just make both of them. For sure your guests will appreciate it a lot!
The inspiration for the potato egg salad comes from the blog cookedbyjulie.
How to make the perfect potato-egg salad
This potato-egg salad is so easy and delicious I could eat it all summer. For sure you can bring in some variation up to your own taste. I also do that. But here we will stick the the basic and original idea.
First of all we peel the potatoes, and then cut them into small cubes. You can them boil them shortly. Or better steam them. I prefer steaming because then they keep more taste. If you cut them quite small, as I do, then you should only boil/steam them very shortly. Otherwise they will be more mashed. And I like a bit of bite.
I love caper and scallions. So they will be my basic flavoring for this salad. But feel free to add spices up to your own taste. Don't be afraid to experiment a bit and surprise yourself!
Of course everything should stick together a bit. You may use some spoonfuls of homemade mayonnaise to do so. You may buy some in the store, but please be tempted and try this very easy homemade Mahonnaise, and learn about the history of this famous white sauce!
