Recipe Ingredients

Here’s our take on a classic potato salad that is [SERIOUSLY] simple to make and only needs 5 ingredients! Add your personal touch by experimenting with semi dried tomatoes, crumbled feta and smokey chorizo.

  • 700g bag gourmet baby potatoes, washed and left whole
  • 2-3 rashers bacon, diced
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • Handful fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1/4-1/2 cup HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Mayonnaise

Recipe Method

  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling lightly salted water for 15-20 minutes until tender. Drain. Set aside until potatoes are cold. Cut potatoes in half if necessary. 
  2. Fry the bacon pieces in a pan until golden and crispy. Drain on paper towels and allow to cool. 
  3. Put potatoes, bacon pieces, spring onions and parsley into a large mixing bowl. Mix through HEINZ [SERIOUSLY] GOOD™ Mayonnaise.

* Note: Use a waxy potato variety such as perlas, Nadine or the new Piccolos Gold Potatoes as they hold their shape better.
** For variation try adding diced semi dried tomatoes, crumbled feta, chives in place of spring onions, and chopped cooked chorizo sausage in place of bacon.
