Wicklewood's Addictive Potato Salad (Warm or Cold)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by WicklewoodWench

This potato salad has been a firm favourite in our family for years, served hot while the potatoes are still warm which melts the mayonnaise slightly or cold as a refreshing side dish. I never peel new potatoes, there’s just no point, but if you really don’t like the skin, a light scraping with a clean scourer will do fine. Size again, is a matter of preference, my family like quite large bite sized chunks of potato, but if I'm making it for a special occasion will cut the potatoes into 1/2 chunks.

I loved the aioli in this it added a new dimension! Used baby Yukon Golds which worked perfectly. DH thought it was too plain and wanted eggs and pickles chopped into it which I didn't do. I made it about 30 mins before dinner and served it at a bit above room temp. Made for Photo Tag.
