I confessed on facebook recently that I have never made potato salad from scratch and I asked if anybody could share their favourite recipe. Wow, I was overwhelmed by the response from over 390 community members. There was some great variety of different ideas, realising that everybody has their own little twist on it.
I have never enjoyed potato salad and I have finally worked out what it was that I didn’t like about it. Two things…the potatoes, in many salads I have had in the past the potatoes have still been hard and not completely cooked, I like them soft and I don’t like the dressing too tangy.
I’m hosting Christmas at my place this year, lunch with hubby’s family and dinner with my family. I serve a cold Christmas feast, typically it’s a hot day on Christmas, we have the air conditioning on and the kids are in and out of the pool most of the day. Salad, cold seafood and meat platters are the best option! I wanted to make a variety of salads. My hubby loves traditional salads, greek salad, coleslaw and potato salad so I thought I would have a go at making it all myself, along with a few others.
After reading through everybody ideas (which you can read here), I came up with my own version. It was so good if I can say so myself. We had family over for a BBQ and they loved it too!

I confess I have never made Coleslaw either, however now that I have my Thermomix, and it chops everything up so easily, this recipe took me only just a few simple minutes to make, again I decided to use something different from the mayo so it didn’t have a tang to it. The cream cheese and chilli was a delicious flavour.
I have included a thermomix and regular recipe below (the best of both worlds!!)Print Print
