Homemade potato salad is like 3 millions times better than the store bought varieties. Its so easy to make and the bonus of eating cold potatoes is that your gut bacteria will thrive with this on your plate. When cold they are high in resistant starch, a prebiotic, helping beneficial bacteria to colonize in the gut and assisting them to stay longer and be more effective.


  • 6 potatoes, peeled, chopped into quarters (I used Aussi Kestrel)

  • 1/4C Mayonaise or plain yogurt

  • 1Tbsp mustard

  • 1/2C of herbs


  • Add potatoes to a pot and add water until just covering.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes or until just soft. You don’t want to over cook them otherwise your salad turns to mush
  • Once soft, drain water and place into a glass container.
  • Gently mix through the rest of the ingredients. Do a taste test and if it needs more mustard or more mayo go ahead. You can also add salt and pepper.
  • Yes that’s it. Super easy


  • This is a basic recipe but other items I like to add are 1/2 a cup of grated carrot or 1/2C of finely chopped pickled cucumbers.
  • This batch is enough to top up your salad lunch boxes. Like I said above it adds a little heaviness to a light salad and beautiful carbs for energy.
