Summer Salads : Simple Potato Salad

Years ago a former boss (Freak knows EXACTLY who I'm talking about) was very fond of the acronym KISS.  It means Keep It Simple Stupid, and it's how I like my food.  I'm not a huge fan of over tweaked and over fussy food and this salad fits in with my philosophy perfectly - simple, quick and easy.

Simple Potato Salad

750g New Potatoes
3 large Spring Onions, finely sliced
1 handful Mint, finely shredded
3 tbsp Mayonnaise
Salt & Pepper

Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender - this takes about 15 minutes.
Drain in a colander & place on a wire rack until cool - cover with a teatowel to avoid any flies in the area (of which there are many at the moment!)

When the potatoes are cool, chop into mouth sized pieces and mix in a bowl with the spring onions and mayonnaise.  Season with the salt and pepper and add the mint.

Chill well for at least an hour before serving.
