I always get comments when i bring this to a bbq, I'm a little embarrassed when asked for the recipe.... because its so simple !

  • I don’t think potato salad is ever going to be my thing


  • Thanks for the tip re vinegar.


  • I love gerkins, will have to give this one a try


  • A potato salad with gherkin – who would have thought ????. It’s a recipe that goes in my list to make for sure.


  • Best idea ever gherkins looks tasty


  • This is exactly what I have bee looking for to serve with Christmas lunch. Simple, tasty and the kids can help me make it. Thank you.


  • Never tried making my own potato salad, and I’ve found supermarket ones I’ve tried to be too bitter or just not tasty. This looks yummy, would love to try it.

  • This is such a simple potato salad that I think I might be able to do. Have had others fail so I’m excited to try this.

  • My favourite potato salad is mayo, sour cream, seeded mustard and garlic. I love it, but this one looks good enough to try
