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!

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!
