This potato salad is a Kiwi summer favourite. Chef Norka Mella Munoz adds a twist to the formula by using her mum’s recipe. This salad is not only delicious, but with all the festive colours it looks great on the Christmas table.

You can make Norka’s dressing or to save time use a store-bought creamy mayonnaise.

Potato Salad

Norka's Salad Dressing

1

Do not peel or chop the potatoes or carrots rather put them in the same saucepan and cook them whole until evenly cooked and can be pierced with a sharp knife with just a bit of resistance.

2

Tip: bring the potatoes and carrots to the boil from cold salted water – this allows the vegetables to keep their starch which gives them a good texture.

3

When cooked, drain and cool the vegetables.

4

Once cooled, peel off the potato skins and carrot skins and dice into smallish squares.

5

Blanch peas and corn and allow them to cool. Mix all the ingredients together and then fold through Norka’s salad dressing or your favourite creamy salad dressing.
