This potato salad is always a winner and, I guarantee you will NEVER need to throw away the leftovers – in my house any leftovers are gobbled up within a day!

It has evolved over the years to match my family’s dietary needs so this version has no gluten or dairy – and no sugar – just to make you feel better!

I prefer to use Maris Piper potatoes but if they are not available, I simply buy whatever potato is recommended for baking.

You could simply add some grilled chicken and dinner would be done!

Enjoy friends!

This recipe has been designed to be gluten and dairy free.
If you aren’t following a dairy free diet, you could use any mayonnaise of your choosing in the recipe. A little Parmesan cheese also works quite nicely if you are able to eat dairy.
I recently tripled this recipe for a gathering of 12 people (predominantly man children) and it was gobbled down!
