Simple Potato & Egg Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Syrinx

A quick, simple and nutritious main-course salad. The dressing is made with a mixture of mayonnaise and yoghurt, so isn't as unhealthy as some! Having said that, there is quite a lot of sauce with the proportions given, so you may want to cut back on the quantities of both mayonnaise and yoghurt. By the way, I boil the potatoes in their skins, then remove only the loose bits of skin when I am mixing the salad. You can, of course, add whatever else you like to the salad, but this basic recipe is very satisfying and delicious in an uncomplicated sort of way :-)

A very tasty recipe that is quick and easy to make. I like the idea of mixing the mayo with yogurt, it tastes better and is much healthier.
