Secret Ingredient Low Fat Potato Salad!

Recipe by French Tart
READY IN: 45mins




  • Peel the potatoes if needed & cut into 1" dice. Boil until just tender - not TOO soft! Drain the potatoes in a colander and set on one side too cool.
  • Meanwhile, mix together the low fat mayonnaise, low fat creme fraiche OR low fat sour cream & Maggi seasoning. Add the black pepper to taste.
  • Add the mayonnaise mixture to the potatoes and mix well but try not to break the potatoes up. Add the cornichons, ham & spring onions to the potato salad - mix through gently.
  • Taste and add more Maggi seasoning or black pepper if required.
  • Put into an attractive bowl and sprinkle more spring onions on as a garnish or parsley. I also like to sprinkle on smoked paprika as a garnish topping too.
  • Optional:
  • Instead of the ham, use crisply fried bacon. Great with egg - egg & bacon potato salad! Instead of the spring onions, use diced red onions.
  • I have also added diced left over chicken & chopped apple to this mixture.
  • I have given the option of using more or less mayonnaise mixture for personal taste; some people like it very creamy & others like it not so creamy!
  • Maggi seasoning is quite salty, so use 1 tablespoon to start with, adding more if needed - teaspoon by teaspoon!
