    ESU's Note:

    This recipe was handed down from my mother and is a nice, zingy type of what can often be a blunt, boring potato salad. Try to use small, similar sized potatoes if possible.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 lbs charlotte potatoes (or salad or new potatoes)
    • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 teaspoon liquid maggi seasoning sauce (from Supermarkets or delicatessen)
    • 1 small onion, finely chopped
    • 2 sweet gherkins, finely chopped (also add 1 tablespoon liquid from Cucumber Gherkin jar)
    • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
    • salt and pepper

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Allow 1 hour cooling time at end of recipe!
    2. 2
      Boil the potatoes in their skins for about 15 minutes, checking to ensure they are just done but not falling apart.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile make the sauce by adding all the other ingredients together in a big mixing bowl.
    4. 4
      When you taste the sauce it should be quite vinegary and salty - adjust to achieve this taste by adding more vinegar if too bland or more mayonnaise if too acidic. Remember: The potatoes will soak up most of the liquid, the salt and the vinegar.
    5. 5
      Drain the potatoes and while still hot (use kitchen gloves) cut into half inch (1.5 cm) slices, peeling potatoes only if you used new potatoes or have a phobia about skins.
    6. 6
      Add sufficient sauce to achieve a wet look, mix under and leave to cool.
    7. 7
      Before serving taste again and add more sauce or adjust taste if needed.
    8. 8
      Serve with Frankfurter Sausages, Beefburgers or serve with Bar-be-ques.
