Potato, Egg and Corn Salad With Buttermilk

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Anita Redhead

A delicious potato salad. It goes well with a green salad on the side for vegetarians, or as a side dish with chicken or meat. You can prepare the potatoes and eggs ahead of time, but using them warm is nice too. If sweet corn isn't in season, use a can of kernels, well drained. Additions for non-vegetarians: salmon, tuna, or a little chicken.

I really liked the flavours and textures in this, but visually it was a bit lacking. Next time I make it, I'll use green onions instead of shallots or add green parsley to the shallots. I think a bit of greenery would lift it no end. I had to use canned corn, so used roasted garlc (I could omit the oil then and reduce the fat count).
