An easy potato salad recipe with only 4 ingredients

BBQ season is well and truly underway and this is the last potato salad recipe you’ll ever need…Probably…

This is a great way to use up tiny, marble like potatoes that you often find when you dig up potatoes – otherwise known as Fingerlings.

This really is one of those recipes that you adjust to suit your own tastes, so if you require more mint, simple add some more to the sauce, and likewise with the salad creme and mayonnaise.
