DIRECTIONS

  • Allow 1 hour cooling time at end of recipe!
  • Boil the potatoes in their skins for about 15 minutes, checking to ensure they are just done but not falling apart.
  • Meanwhile make the sauce by adding all the other ingredients together in a big mixing bowl.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add sufficient sauce to achieve a wet look, mix under and leave to cool.
  • Before serving taste again and add more sauce or adjust taste if needed.
  • Serve with Frankfurter Sausages, Beefburgers or serve with Bar-be-ques.
