In these hot summer days we eat a lot of potato salad. It doesn’t take long to make and is handy to keep in the fridge for light lunches with a bit of grilled chicken. However, I also make this easy potato salad recipe all the time for our garden barbecues or picnics in the park.

English Mint Potato Salad is also the perfect dish for bringing along to a gathering or potluck as it goes with pretty much anything. If you need to leave it out on a buffet table for a while then you also don’t need to worry at all as there is no mayo here to spoil.

Do you need to peel the new potatoes?

Nope, which is why they are the best potatoes to use for a potato salad. However if they are direct from the farmers’ market then scrub them well to remove any dirt.

Can you make Potato Salad the day before?

Yes, it keeps well for up to 3 days. However, I do recommend if you are making it beforehand then to top off the dish just before serving with another tablespoon of chopped fresh mint leaves to liven it up. I also recommend serving at room temperature and not straight from the fridge.
