Tri Colour Potato Salad In Simplest Mayonnaise Dressing

Back in cooking school and even in secondary school, potato was my middle nick name. People would call me KANTANG! So naturally i make a mean potato salad. There are a hundred thousand gisellion types of potato salads. Because potato is such a versatile ingredient due to its neutral taste, you can have it with almost anything. tangy mustard, nutmeg, melted butter and herbs, sour cream and chives, beetroot, anchovies and capers, Cajun, or the simplest mayonnaise dressing which is what I’m gonna teach you to prepare! :p

Serves 3

  • 1 Yellow Potato


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbs White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tbs Bacon Oil (Optional Or You Could Add Bacon)
  • 2 tbs Spring Onions
  • Salt & Pepper
  1. Boil potatoes in salted water with skin on for about 10-12 minutes or until tender but not falling apart.
